Help, my patient has arrested! An introduction to CPR (for Nurses)
In this webinar we will review the RECOVER ( Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation) guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. In practice CPR is fortunately not often required but when it does occur it can be a stressful event for everyone involved. The aim of this seminar is to leave you feeling more confident when dealing with a situation when your patient has arrested. For the scope of this seminar we will focus on Basic Life Support. Advanced Life Support falls out of the scope of this webinar but will be briefly discussed. You will learn how to recognize and assess cardiopulmonary arrest and how to respond to this appropriately. The principles of Basic Life Support will be covered step by step, both in a single rescue situation and a team situation. This includes chest compressions and discussing chest compression points in different breeds and species, intubation and ventilation. These guidelines will help you deal with any CPR code in your practice.
