Congratulations! You have ROSC! Well, had it…
Learn how to prevent the cyclic ROSC-arrest-ROSC-arrest dilemma with a step-by-step approach to management immediately after achieving ROSC from EM intensivists who bring to you the continuum of post-arrest care. Learn to think ahead to that next possible arrest and adjust when the pressures swing and the mental status sways. Go from ROSC to hemodynamically stable like a pro and get your patient ready for transport or transfer. What medications should you start? What lines should you have? What predicts safe transfer to another facility? Come find out!
Explain the physiologic changes after cardiac arrest that make patients more susceptible to arresting again
Describe how to anticipate repeat cardiac arrest
Describe interventions that can reduce the risk of post-ROSC cardiac arrest
