Date: Friday February 18, 2011

Presented by: Dr. Michael Lewell, Regional Medical Director and Dr. Matthew Davis, EMS Fellow, SWORBHP

Brief Description:

The American Heart Association recently released the new recommendations for Emergency Cardiovascular Care. These recommendations drive changes to everything from lay-rescuer CPR, to paramedic medical directives, and advanced in-hospital care. How do these changes come about? How might the recommendations affect paramedic practice? 

Paramedics of all levels will benefit from joining this webinar, as you will be able to:

  • Summarize the recommended changes to Emergency Cardiovascular Care by the American Heart Association

  • Explain how expert opinion and research guides the creation of new Provincial Advanced Medical Directives

  • Compare the current standard of practice to the recommended changes, and defend the rationale for these changes

  • Verify that the current practice does not change until new Advanced Life Support Patient Care Standards are released and paramedic training is complete. 

Important Note:
Due to technical issues, the webinar freezes near the end of the presentation, but the audio continues so viewers are still able to hear the final comments and Q/A session.
System Requirements:
You must have Windows Media Player 11 or newer installed on your computer in order to watch recorded webinars. If needed, download Windows Media Player here

Important Note:

The Advanced Life Support Patient Care Standards were revised in November 2011.  Whenever reviewing paramedic rounds and webinars recorded before that date, be sure to consult the most current version of the Patient Care Standards for proper application of the medical directives.
