Resuscitation Academy Online

The Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­emy has been well received by those who have made a trip to Seat­tle for one of the semi-annual 2 – day courses. Sev­eral com­mu­ni­ties have more than dou­bled the long – term sur­vival rates from out – of – hos­pi­tal car­diac arrest after attend­ing the course. Until now, enroll­ment has been lim­ited to just 80 stu­dents per year. Now, more EMS lead­ers can take advan­tage of the pro­gram via the web, and ulti­mately use the infor­ma­tion to increase car­diac arrest sur­vival in their communities. The con­tent for the online Resus­ci­ta­tion Acad­emy will be based on the exist­ing 2 – day course. We are for­tu­nate to be incor­po­rat­ing not only the exper­tise of the long serv­ing lead­ers of the Seat­tle and King County EMS sys­tems, but also other experts involved in Medtronic Phil­an­thropy HeartRes­cue activities. Some of the top­ics that will be cov­ered include:

  • 10 steps to improve survival
  • High-performance CPR
  • Telecommunicator CPR
  • Participating in a data collection registry
  • Resuscitation science
  • Community CPR and AED programs
  • Medical leadership
  • Creating a culture of excellence

The course features lectures from leading experts, moderated discussion forums, and a rich library of resources all designed to help students make improvements in their own systems as soon as possible.

Who: EMS medical directors, managers, or training officers.
