Waaaay back in December 2013 the Australian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium (Aus-ROC) held a great seminar on ‘Mechanical Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation’ at The Alfred. Unfortunately some of us were working night shifts and couldn’t attend… Fortunately Aus-ROC have created free online videos of the key talks so that no one misses out.
Here are the video links (for mp4 downloads):
- Introduction by Professor Judith Finn – Professor Finn is the Director of Aus-ROC.
- Mechanical Chest Compressions during CPR by Professor Sten Rubertsson – Professor Rubertson made the trip from Sweden to give this talk in the wake of The LINC trial, of which he was the lead investigator.
