Traumatic Cardiac Arrest; for many of us an infrequent presentation and it that lies the problem.

In our previous cardiac arrest podcast we talked about the approach to the arresting patient, however in trauma the approach change significantly.

We require a different set of skills and priorities and having the whole team on board whilst sharing the same mental model is key.

Have a listen to the podcast and let us know your thoughts. The references are below but if you only read one thing take a look at the ERC Guidelines on traumatic cardiac arrest which we refer to.

Enjoy!
