Cardiac Arrest flow

Cardiac arrest: low flow and no flow crux – Jason Bowman

Cardiac arrest physiology is an emerging field of research that may allow us to better understand why clinical trials of cardiac arrest have been so frustrating, why epinephrine doesn’t work, and how we can potentially do better in the future by augmenting blood flow and programming the cells with ischaemic conditioning.


Dr. Jason Bowman (@texprehospital) was a firefighter and critical care paramedic in Texas for 10 years before going to medical school and becoming an emergency medicine resident at the University of Kentucky.

In 2009 he started a prehospital ultrasound program and began teaching this to other medics, eventually helping form the EMSPOCUS group. He also co-owned and ran a porcine cardiac arrest research laboratory for 7 years and was the PI of several rat cardiac arrest research pilot trials in the Texas A&M Department of Molecular Cardiology. His areas of interest are airway management, ultrasound education and translational cardiac arrest physiology research.
