Papers of November


This month the literature seems to be focussed on cardiac arrest.

In this podcast we’ll cover a paper looking at the significance of chest compression rate, ultrasound for prognostication (and to a lesser extent identification of tamponade) and finally a systematic review and meta-analysis of PCI following ROSC.

The PCI paper follows on nicely from our previous podcast on the topic, so make sure you have a listen to that one first.

Our sponsors ADPRAC are giving away another £30 iTunes voucher to spend on education/entertainment to support your work life balance! All you need to do is click the link on our home page through to the ADPRAC website and answer the question relating to the podcast, good luck!
