Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium presentations made available free online

The Resuscitation Group in Edinburgh have made presentations from this year’s Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium free to view online.

Presentations were broadcast live as EventCasts, as well as being made available to watch on-demand.

‘EventCasting is simply the broadcasting of a conference or seminar over the internet,’ said Pam Lanham, director, Video3 Technologies Ltd.

‘The event can be broadcast live or it can be recorded and broadcast later, at a date that suits you,’ she added.

The Symposium, a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Scottish Government and industry partners, sought to bring together international thought leaders in the field of resuscitation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Speakers were invited to address the question: ‘How do we build a system that saves lives after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA)?’

The Symposium announced Scotland’s plan to revolutionise the way we deal with OHCA, and gave delegates an opportunity to learn about integrating elements of the whole chain of survival to optimise clinical outcomes.
