Papers of September 2020

Welcome back!!

So we’ve had a small summer hiatus and are now back with another Papers of The Month and a jam packed line up of episodes for the rest of the year!

We start off this month with a paper which looks to evaluate if there is any benefit on mortality with the use of checklists for endotracheal intubation.

Next up we take a look at the factors in cardiac arrest that are most important with regards to prognostication; what should your attention and handover be most focussed upon?

Finally we take a look at a paper suggesting that blood gases following ROSC can help us prognosticate for our patient and how this might this affect our practice.

Finally keep an eye out for our CPD portal and app which is in the final stages of testing and will be out very shortly!! We’ll be keeping you up to date on twitter @TheResusRoom with its launch

Enjoy!

Simon & Rob
