Embark on a fascinating exploration of Fully Automated Cardiac Arrest Management with Dr. Jason van der Velde, who’s been part of a team refining the FA-CPR algorithm since 2019. Gain unique insights into real-world applications and ongoing research opportunities in optimising the “Low Flow State” through innovative approaches like Chest Compression Synchronised Ventilation (CCSV). Dr. Van der Velde shares an iterative journey, supported by real-life data, underscoring the profound impact of personalised CPR tailored to individual patients in rural Ireland. The talk goes beyond conventional guidelines, delving into the intricate science and human factors essential for achieving substantial improvements in Return of Spontaneous Circulation (ROSC) rates. Attendees will leave with a deep understanding of the potential of Fully Automated CPR with CCSV as a dynamic and continually evolving strategy, acting as a strategic placeholder to buy essential time for comprehensive diagnostics and personalised interventions. The presentation hints at transformative possibilities in resuscitation science, featuring case studies that showcase the concept of bridging patients to definitive interventions such as cardiac angiography and Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO).
