    Surviving out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

    Surviving out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

    This is the talk by Richard Lyon at The Bick Sick in Zermatt, 2018.



    Richard has been the lead on a number of initiatives that have succeeded in improving dramatically what were dismal outcomes in Scotland in the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest population. Tune in to hear about the marginal gains approach with attention to every little detail. Learn how to improve your clinical audit data to allow feedback to the clinicians and how to lead the way forward in your own organisations and communities. Finally, some thoughts on how new and upcoming technology can be harnessed to provide even better care for this patient group.

    Airway decontamination – the dark side of airway management

    Airway decontamination – the dark side of airway management

    This is James DuCanto‘s talk at the airway session at The Bick Sick in Zermatt, 2018.



    Jim is well known in the FOAM sphere and beyond for his passion on airway management and is a very dedicated and ingenious inventor of equipment for airway simulation and airway management. I personally feel his beeryngoscope deserves more recognition. And no, I don’t think that’s trademarked yet, but it ought to be.





    On a more serious note, in recent years Jim has focused a lot of energy on the SALAD concept (suction assisted laryngoscopy airway decontamination) which essentially is continuous suctioning of the airway through the whole intubation process. He has demonstrated it at numerous conferences throughout the world including, now, in Zermatt for TBS. The amount of flights cases he drags around the world for the setup is quite insane and a testiment to Jim’s no holds barred approach to life. If you get a chance to try it out do take it, as it’ll probably be your one shot at intubating a regurgitating wookie with a laryngoscope fitted to an axe.



    Follow Jim down the rabbit hole of contaminated airways in this talk.

    Hemorrhagic shock – a holistic view

    Geir Strandenes' talk at The Bick Sick in Zermatt, 2018.



    Geir does a tour de force on blood transfusion, its history, physiology, the evidence base and ongoing developments in prehospital transfusion practice in both civilian and military settings. He specifically adresses how to apply principles of damage control resuscitation to remote locations and the introduction of fresh whole blood prehospitally from the point of injury onward.



    Geir represents the THOR network (Trauma Hemostasis and Oxygenation Research network) where you can find more information
