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.

Thus begins uploading the backlog

As anyone who bothers to look at this website will realise, it has been over a year since I actually bothered to upload anything. Perhaps the most frustrating thing about this is the fact that I’m paying for a domain name I don’t even use. However, I have finally decided to get my act in gear and start putting up the plethora of reviews, features and interviews that I have done for a variety of publications this year.

Let the uploading begin

No Posts For While

I won’t be able to post for a while as I leave in the morning on a hitch hike from Edinburgh to Morocco in aid of the charity Link Community Development which aims at providing quality education to Sub-Saharan African Schools.

Hello folks

Seeing as this is my first entry I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Ali Quaile I am 20 years old and studying Philosophy and Theology at the University of Edinburgh. I thought I would use this blog to help promote my radio show: ‘Ali’s Eclectic Afternoon’ on Fresh Air Radio (Edinburgh University’s student radio station) on Wednesday’s from 16:30 – 17: 30 which can be heard by visiting:

My aims for the blog are basically to put down the playlist for my radio show each week as well as reviewing live gigs/club nights that I manage to go to in Edinburgh and Glasgow posting interviews where possible and also reviewing/posting new music that I manage to get my hands on.

I guess that is all for now but I look forward to making my first proper post
