Last week at our junior medical staff teaching, Professor Steve Bernard gave us a talk titled “Resuscitation Update 2015”. Steve talked about many things, including:
- Recent data from registries on in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), particularly from Victoria, and the reasons why OHCA results may be improving
- Options for treatment of refractory VT/VF, including the CHEER2 trial
- The RINSE trial: is intra-arrest cooling with ice cold IV saline for OHCA a good thing?
- Highlights from the recently released updated ILCOR guidelines, which will form the basis for the next ARC guideline update
The audio of the talk (47 minutes long) has been published on The RAGE Podcast and is reposted below in case you missed it:
