720…can you stick it?

 

Here at rightseatmedicine we are excited for the Toronto Paramedic Services and the Sunnybrook Centre for Prehospital Medicine who recently published a case report (Prehospital Emergency Care) exemplifying Double Sequential External Defibrillation (DSED) as a viable option for the prehospital conversion of refractory VF.

 

See the video illustrating the simulated application of such an intervention.

Exciting enough, DSED is also being supported here at Coastal Health and I have the opportunity to observe the resuscitation team here at LGH on the North Shore apply DSED to a patient under their care.

720. Can you stick it? Would it stick in your Service. Lets see how it shapes up here.
