I received a link to this video the other day, and have engaged in quite a bit of discussion of it.
The link came with another link to the discussion below:
Emergency Medicine News
Is hands on defibrillation safe? Or will we all end up with curly hair?
Theoretically, it makes a lot of sense. Donâ€™t stop CPR. But I think we all need a little more safety information before we start doing it (and of course safety permission from our employers).
The other morning when I came in to work there was a company memo addressing the issue. The bottom line was do CPR right up until you defibrillate and then clear. At least until further nortice.
