Implementation of a High-Performance Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Protocol at a Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Program
Stefos, Kathryn A.; Nable, Jose V.
Journal of American College Health, v64 n4 p329-333 2016
Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a significant public health issue. Although OHCA occurs relatively infrequently in the collegiate environment, educational institutions with on-campus emergency medical services (EMS) agencies are uniquely positioned to provide high-quality resuscitation care in an expedient fashion. Georgetown University's on-campus EMS program recently updated its medical protocols to reflect the latest literature in resuscitation science. In a high-performance CPR (HPCPR) resuscitation, minimally interrupted chest compressions are emphasized, along with a coordinated team-based approach.
