JC: Rapid update on the resus pearls of 2013. St.Emlyn’s

Two papers on the prepublication list at the Resuscitation Journal. The first is open access (#FOAMed), and both are worth a read. There are some great resus pearls in here.

Paper 1 covers highlights in epidemiology, cardiac arrest prevention, BLS, education, defibrillation, pregnancy, trauma, drowning and avalanche (!).

Paper 2 covers highlights in ALS, post resus care, prognostication and cardiac arrest centres.

There’s a lot in these papers so I’m not going to summarise them here (as they are effectively summaries themselves). Both worth a read though.
