What if they aren’t actually dead? Guiding Cardiac Arrest with Ultrasound
On-demand webinar

On-demand webinar
What if they aren’t actually dead? Guiding Cardiac Arrest with Ultrasound


When:
August 20, 2020, 3:00 – 4:00 PM EST

Speaker:
Tyler Christifulli
, CCP, FP-C, NRP, is a flight paramedic for LifeLink III in St. Paul, MN. Co-creator of the FOAMfrat blog and podcast and an active educator for FlightBridgeED.

Description:
 You can’t feel a pulse, you start compressions, and now comes the cycle of Epinephrine and rhythm checks. What if this patient didn’t need compressions? What if the heart was beating just fine? Can EMS accurately rely on palpating a pulse? What consequences come with chest compressions on a beating heart? In this talk, Tyler Christifulli will show how ultrasound has changed the way we approach cardiac arrest.

Objectives:
  • Identify the various types of pulseless electrical activity (PEA)
  • Evaluate the importance of chest compression position when giving manual or mechanical compressions
  • Discuss perils of working traumatic arrests like medical arrests
