Emergency physicians are responsible for initiating investigations and interventions to diagnose and/or treat patients in the acute phase (including initial resuscitation and stabilization), coordinating care with physicians from other specialities, and making decisions regarding a patient’s need for hospital admission, observation, or discharge.
Dr. Laurie Morrison conducts systematic reviews and meta-analyses in topics pertaining to acute coronary syndrome and resuscitation, and has established a collaborative network to conduct and publish randomized controlled trials and outcome validation studies in prehospital resuscitation research. She is also a National Institute of Health, Canadian Institute of Health Research and Heart and Stroke Canada funded investigator within the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium.
And remember if you see someone collapse remember to:
- Call 911
- Start chest compressions
- Send someone to get the AED
Something NEW is the dispatcher has skilled training in coaching you through the resuscitation process.
Pursue your passion ~ just because you can’t find someone doing it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue it.
