Lunch and Learn: Special circumstances of cardiac arrest

Cardiac arrest is a critical medical emergency that requires prompt and effective intervention to improve patient outcomes.

While the management of cardiac arrest follows standardised protocols, special circumstances such as trauma, anaphylaxis, sepsis, malignant hyperthermia, and post-cardiac surgery require tailored approaches to ensure optimal patient care.

Additionally, managing cardiac arrest in diverse clinical locations such as the operating room, in-flight situations, cruise ships, drowning incidents, and mass casualty scenarios presents unique challenges.
