PaO2/FiO2 ratio is the ratio of arterial oxygen partial pressure (PaO2 in mmHg) to fractional inspired oxygen (FiO2 expressed as a fraction, not a percentage)
Mechanical cardiopulmonary resuscitation (mCPR) devices are automated devices that provide chest compression during cardiac arrest, without the need for human-performed manual compression.
Frank Pantridge (1916 – 2004) was a Northern Irish cardiologist who created pre-hospital coronary care through the invention of the portable defibrillator
In drowning victims, it’s primarily respiratory in nature, and they absolutely need ventilations. But how many of the ads for CCPR are that nuanced?
Keeping your patient oxygenated during rapid sequence intubation has never been easier – with Own the Oxygen
If the light on the laryngoscope fails, clean contact between blade and handle, check bulb is screwed in place securely. If this fails, use a spoon
The degree of acid-base abnormality during cardiac arrest and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is dependent on a number of variables
Arterial Blood Gas in Hypothermia. The solubility of oxygen and carbon dioxide is increased at low temperatures.
Bimanual laryngoscopy using external laryngeal manipulation (ELM) is the single most practical and effective airway management technique for facilitating intubation during direct laryngoscopy.
Resuscitology isn’t really a course or a conference though. It’s a gathering of like-minded Resuscitationists who want to learn from each other on how to optimise their practice.
