Learning Objectives

This webinar focused on essential bedside skills as well as system considerations to improve outcomes from cardiac arrest.  High performance CPR, effective defibrillation, feedback on performance, team training & post arrest care are discussed.  In addition, cutting edge therapies such as mechanical CPR & ECMOwere presented as an option for patients with refractory ventricular fibrillation.


  1. Discuss the components of high performance CPR
  2. Describe techniques for rapid, effective defibrillation
  3. Discuss CPR feedback & team training
  4. Discuss targeted temperature management & post arrest care hemodynamic management
  5. Describe cutting edge therapies including E-CPR for refractory Ventricular Fibrillation
