Lunch and Learn: Reversible causes of arrest - Bonus Content

Continuing with our Lunch and Learn series,focusing on rapid updates on patient care and skills based topics. This on demand session covers reversible causes of cardiac arrest.

Early defibrillation and good quality CPR are the cornerstone of resuscitation, but if the cause of arrest is not quickly identified and managed, the patient is at risk of re-arrest or not being able to be resuscitated.  Generally referred to as the 4Hs & 4Ts, the common causes of cardiac arrest need to be resolved to restore normal physiological function.  In some situations, modifications to the ALS algorithm also need to be considered, these situations are referred to as special circumstances and are typically an extension of the 4Hs & 4Ts.

Enrolment in this learning gives you access to skills video and interactive eLearning exploring the reversible causes of cardiac arrest  focusing on patient assessment, and management within the context of the ALS algorithm. that demonstrates within an ALS scenario, management of reversible causes as well as an interactive eLearning activity to test your knowledge.

This learning is open to all healthcare professionals and is recommended if you want to get the latest science on resuscitation, and hone your resuscitation skills to facilitate  timely intervention, deployment of resources and integration of non-technical and technical skills to improve outcomes.
