“Improving Survival from Cardiac Arrest: What Does it Take?”

Saxe Communications & Stryker* present…“Improving Survival from Cardiac Arrest: What Does it Take?”

Of the more than 300,000 cardiac arrests that occur annually in the US, survival rates are typically lower than 10% for out-of-hospital events and lower than 20% for in-hospital events. The actions and performance of healthcare providers can make a difference in improving survival rates. Our multi-specialty presenters will provide a lively discussion on current methods and the future direction of resuscitation practices both in- and out-of-hospital. They will drill down on what it takes to make a difference in surviving cardiac arrest including high-quality performance CPR and metrics, training strategies and device feedback.

Learning Objectives  |  Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss the importance of early recognition, early high-quality CPR and early effective defibrillation including the 2020 AHA Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular care
  2. Discuss current high-performance CPR metrics and integration of training and feedback into resuscitation programs
  3. Describe future practices which may change the resuscitation landscape
