New trial looks at out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
A new study led by CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Brian Grunau (on right) will examine whether a cardiopulmonary resuscitation tool can increase the survival rate of people who experience sudden cardiac arrest out-of-hospital.
The trial is a two-year study which will examine the benefits of a protocol that uses an Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR) machine on eligible patients with cardiac arrest who are unable to be revived.
