Last week, the resuscitation team at the Health Academy, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, hosted a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Defibrillator quality improvement event. Employees from ZOLL; a medical device and software solutions company that delivers emergency care technology, came to demonstrate the importance of CPR feedback during cardiac arrests.
Staff from the Emergency Department, Theatres at Royal Preston Hospital, Paediatrics, and our very own Chief Executive Officer – Kevin McGee were in attendance. All staff performed well despite the hot weather, and the results were recorded by ZOLL to be used in a report which is yet to be released.
Kevin McGee, Chief Executive Officer of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust wrote on Twitter: “A fascinating morning witnessing a new project as part of a Defibrillator Quality Improvement Day…. Thank you for having me.”
We would like to thank ZOLL and the LTHTr teams who were involved in the day for their input and efforts.
