Event Information

“Blue Hearts Don’t Start” - Terminating or withholding cardiopulmonary resuscitation:  Can futility be accurately predicted in the pre-hospital environment?

Presented by Jon Newton MSc MCPara, t-ACP Emergency Medicine, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, and Senior Lecturer Paramedic Science University of Gloucestershire

Terminating or withholding cardiopulmonary resuscitation is irrefutably a tremendous responsibility for any clinician to make - and an area of practice surrounded by controversy and moral/ethical dilemma. This seminar explores many of the common challenges faced by paramedics and receiving emergency departments whilst providing a selection of novel, evidenced based strategies and a live simulation. If you want to improve your technical and non-technical resuscitation skills and digest the findings and future-practice recommendations of a contentious research study, this seminar is without doubt one for you! Student clinicians, technicians, paramedics, nurses and doctors are all welcome.
