GRA Call to Action Updated

On June 6-7, 2015 at the Utstein Abbey near Stavanger, Norway, 36 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) leaders, researchers, and experts from throughout the world convened to address the challenge of how to increase community cardiac arrest survival and how to achieve implementation of best practices and worthwhile programs. We called for the establishment of a Global Resuscitation Alliance in order to expand internationally the reach and utility of the Resuscitation Academy. Such a global effort will promote best practices and offer help with implementation to countless communities.

Resuscitation Academy eBook Enhanced

Ten Steps for Improving Survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest

The Resuscitation Academy has issued a new publication entitled “Ten Steps for Improving Survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.”

The ebook is available for free through the Apple iTunes Bookstore as an enhanced iBook. To download a copy you will need an iPad (specifically an iPad that supports iBooks 2 or later and iOS 5 or later. Because the ebook has embedded video and audio it is relatively large-421MB – so please verify you have enough space available before downloading). If you have iTunes installed on your computer, you can access the ebook in iTunes directly by clicking the button below or by searching the iTunes Bookstore using the search term “Ten Steps for Improving”.

Once the iBook is downloaded, all the videos and sound files can be accessed without a wireless connection. External links still will require a wireless connection.

For this version you will need a wireless connection to view the videos and listen to the sound files.

We earnestly hope this publication will stimulate discussion within your EMS system on how to improve cardiac arrest survival.
