Resuscitation Council 2015 recommendations we released last Thursday and we have studied the latest Resuscitation changes and are changing over to the new recommendations on our courses very soon. The recommendations on CPR change every five years. On the 15th October 2015, the European Resuscitation Council, ILCOR and UK Resuscitation Council announced the 2015 guidelines. Our training courses will shortly follow the ERC and UK 2015 recommendations to ensure the latest guidelines are including in our online and classroom courses.
When the rules change, its not that the old rules were wrong, it’s that better advice is now available to improve the survival rates for a patient and improving the understanding of what to do for the rescuer. Read the rest of this entry →

More women’s lives could be save by a new highly-sensitive test for heart attacks, according to a top doctor. A large trial, under way at the University of Edinburgh, is hoping to confirm research that showed heart attacks could be diagnosed in twice as many women.
The test is thought to be better at detecting lower levels of troponin, a protein that leaks into the heart muscles after they have been damaged by an attack. Doctors measure troponin to see if chest pains are the result of a recent heart attack. Read the rest of this entry →

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has started a review of adrenaline auto-injectors, which are used as first-aid treatment of anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions) prior to calling for emergency medical assistance.
This review was requested by the UK medicines agency, the MHRA, following a national review of all adrenaline auto-injector products approved in the UK. Although the product information of adrenaline auto-injectors states that the devices deliver adrenaline into a muscle, the UK review concluded that there is no robust evidence that this is the case for all patients. Depending on individual factors such as skin-to-muscle depth, adrenaline may instead be injected under the skin (but not into a muscle), which may result in a different absorption profile (uptake of the medicine by the body).

World Asthma Day 2014, the most far reaching National Review of Asthma Deaths has been published. Shockingly it shows almost half of deaths could have been avoided with better routine care. It has identified prescribing errors of a horrifying scale and is a damning indictment of current routine practice. Asthma UK’s full report on these findings and what must change is available here. Sadly, the review confirms previous Asthma UK research; that far too often the 1 in 11 people who have asthma are short-changed by the system. Read the rest of this entry →
