Video: Watch all of the elements of the chain of survival come together


Average survival from cardiac arrest remains at a dismal ~10%. What can EMS clinicians do to improve these numbers? We need to follow the evidence that shows the benefits of a high-performing system of care.

Join Drs. Antevy, Spiro, Piehl and Dunlap, and their guest, William Fales, MD, FACEP, FAEMS, professor and chief, Division of EMS and Disaster Medicine, Western Michigan University Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine, to review the videoed case of an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in which all of the elements of the chain of survival came together to give the patient a good outcome.

At the end of this video, you can view the case from start to finish.

Reel Emergency covers the latest evidence with real cases in emergency and critical care medicine. Produced in partnership with ReelDx, Handtevy and 410 Medical. CE available from Prodigy EMS.
