ZOLL Breakfast and Learn: “Changing Your Organization’s Resuscitation Mindset”
In the not-so-distant past, many professional rescuers viewed CPR as an almost futile effort. No more. Thanks to evidence-based changes in CPR delivery and new technology, we know the power of really good CPR. Two experienced EMS providers and instructors from the Mesa Fire/Medical Department, EMS Captain John Tobin and Engineer, EMT Scott Crawford, have seen it firsthand. They will share how training and incorporating ZOLL’s CPR Dashboard into the equation have dramatically improved survival rates in Mesa. Learn methods you can take back to your own organization to make this culture shift. The session will be held Friday, March 8 at 8:30 a.m. Convention Center Room #102AM.
