Closed Chest Compressions in Traumatic Cardiac Arrest - Good, Bad or Indifferent Presented by Dr. Sarah Watts MRCVS
Wednesday 8th July 2020 - 8PM
The purpose of the talk is to stimulate debate regarding the utility of closed chest compressions in the context of cardiac arrest due to severe hypovolaemia. The talk will focus on presenting the data from a pre-clinical study that compared the use of closed chest compressions alone or in conjunction with fluid therapy to fluid therapy alone in a model haemorrhage induced cardiac arrest.
ABOUT THE PRESENTER
I graduated from Royal Veterinary College in 1994 and after 3 years working as a vet in mixed practice in Leicestershire returned to university to complete a PhD. I joined Dstl in 2000 and began working in the Trauma Research Team in 2002. I am currently Senior Principal Scientist and I am one of the Technical Leads for the Medical Sciences Programme, the aim of which is to undertake research that supports Defence Medical Services and their delivery of excellent trauma care. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, golf and yoga, and although I also enjoy cooking I must be one of the few people in UK that has not made a sourdough loaf during lockdown!
