Episode 14 - Traumatic Arrest - A Paradigm Shift.

Episode 14,   Aug 24, 2019, 03:55 AM

Today we challenge the idea that working traumatic arrests is futile. 

They are young, they are healthy and 5-7% will walk out of hospital neurologically intact. 

Presenting ECG rhythm is not a good determinate of outcome.

Outside of cranial destruction, hemicorporectomy and incineration, there are no good indicators of futility.

So if in doubt, resuscitate these patients.
