Tip of the Week: Cutting Edge Resuscitation Research

disaster podcast

Our partners and sponsors here at the Disaster Podcast, Paragon Medical Education Group (@paragonmededuon Twitter), are involved in breaking the barriers of traditional medical education in all areas. We know from their previous episodes here on the Disaster Podcast that they specialize in Disaster education but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t involved with other areas of medical education and research. They have been doing some really incredible research into cardiac arrest resuscitation in association with Dr. Keith Lurie in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They are working on research into “Heads-up CPR” and the use of impedance threshold devices that reduce intra-thoracic pressures during compressions like the ResQPod and the ResQPump from Advanced Circulatory.

Check out this special segment on the groundbreaking, cutting edge research Dr. Joe Holley and paramedic Jim Logan are involved with at Paragon. They talk about early results and their efforts to create a cadaver-based model for education and demonstration of these devices and techniques for cardiac arrest resuscitation. They will also be demonstrating some of these things at EMS World Expo in Las Vegas Sept 16-19, 2015 for a limited VIP audience. You can find out how to get a first-hand look by asking about the Advanced Circulatory/Paragon demo in the Zoll booth (booth #1010) at the event.
