“The ABCs & CABs of Resuscitation: Are We Causing Harm With Assisted Breathing & Ventilation Techniques?”

Physio-Control/Stryker & Saxe Healthcare Communications present*“The ABCs & CABs of Resuscitation:
Are We Causing Harm With Assisted Breathing & Ventilation Techniques?”

After cardiac arrest a combination of basic and advanced airway and ventilation techniques are used during cardiopulmonary resuscitation and after a return of spontaneous circulation. While airway and assisted ventilation have long been a mainstay of treatment during cardiac arrest, newer recommendations and evidence have led to compelling questions of the use of advanced airways during resuscitation. This webinar will examine the evidence behind assisted breathing and ventilations during resuscitation events with the goal of improving resuscitation outcomes.

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

  1. Discuss the current ILCOR and AHA recommendations regarding assisted ventilations during resuscitation
  2. Describe recent hospital- and EMS-based research regarding the placement of an advanced airway during resuscitation events
  3. Discuss the integration of capnography for high risk patients & during resuscitation events
