If you care for #PedsCICU patients or #CHD patients in the #PedsICU & aren't engaged with PC4, the outstanding recap of the #CardiacArrestPrevention project results by @bubblesdadee is one great example of how you can change your practice & outcomes as a @pc4quality center! 1/3
Significant reduction in #cardiacarrest by this #CollaborativeQI project lead to many lives saved! It's possible to #PreventCardiacArrest! Over 110 of our PC4 family participated in today's call to review the results, which were previously presented at #AHA19 @AHAMeetings!
Thanks to @TheCHF for their generous support of PC4 & @CardiacUnited for helping us collaborate to change the paradigm in #CHD research! 3/3

General Principles of #ProtectHealthCareWorkers have always applied to first responders in prior #resuscitation guidelines. Remember, first things first:

👉Assess the safety of the scene, make sure that victim, yourself and bystanders are safe


Minimize the number of people in the room

👉 Whenever able, mechanical CPR devices can reduce the number of rescuers required & provide consistent high-quality compressions

Recent days have seen a lot of conversations about how #COVID19 is impacting upon decisions around end of life care, particularly for those of us with bodies that are more broken than most.

The fact that such fear and misinformation exists within the disabled community is perhaps in part the fault of my own profession; though improving, we’ve historically not been very good at discussing the D word. Add the “Holby City Effect” & it becomes a very muddled topic. 2/9
So let’s forget this novel #Coronavirus for a minute and think about what #CPR is and isn’t for.
TL:DR? CPR is not a cure for natural dying. 3/9

This is a MUST SEE video on the #Coronavirus in Italy. The #ICU intensivist explains the epidemic and treatment- Report From The Front Lines @JAMA_current - YouTube #Covid_19 #COVIDー19 #COVID
This is a good summary but somewhat inconsistent to what we have been hearing on #twitter about #italy. The question about triaging those sick and above 60 yo was NOT answered directly. He said the goal was for everyone to get an ICU bed but was that successful? 1/
There are many pictures of hazmat suits which is somewhat different and more aggressive than the reports we have been hearing about #coronavirus in Lombardy 2/

Dear medical professionals,
Do you know how to perform high quality #cpr (cardiopulmonary resuscitation?

You have been invited to speak with one of the board members of a leading telecommunications company in Nigeria about your proposal.
1)During the first 10 minutes of your conversation, you noticed that the man has been coughing and holding his chest, suddenly he falls to the ground and you discover that there is no pulse or respiration

As a medical practitioner, what is your first call of action?
2)Do you know the universal sign to differentiate between Cardiac arrest and heart attack?

Are you confident about what to do at this point?

Do you know how to activate emergency response system?
