Head Up CPR Took Center Stage
at this year’s American Heart Association Resuscitation Science Symposium.
Dr. Johanna Moore was an invited presenter to discuss Head Up CPR as part of the Revisiting Basic Life Support Plenary Session.
Dr. Moore also covered exciting new findings in a Late Breaking Resuscitation Science Oral Presentation: Faster time to elevation of the head and thorax during cardiopulmonary resuscitation increases likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation after out of hospital cardiac arrest.
Key Takeaway: Early application of HUP CPR is associated with a higher likelihood of resuscitation.
