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.
