Winter (OK make it autumn) is fast approaching and we have something exciting and timely for you at our next C & C on the 13th/Apr.
Dr Malin Zachau is a passionate researcher/educator and kindly offered her latest poster presentation which she is also presenting at NZ Resuscitation Council conference.
Malin will talk about the analysis of coronial data of Accidental Hypothermia in NZ as well as changes called for NZ to be managing accidental hypothermia in line with current best evidence.
She will also run through the ICAR (International Commission for Avalanche Rescue) avalanche patient rescue algorithm and introduce the HOPE score which is hot off the press.
HOPE Score http://www.resuscitationjournal.com/article/S0300-9572(18)30094-7/fulltext
We will also have time to discuss interesting cases that your colleagues have been to recently.
So pencil the date 13/Apr/18 (1300~1600hrs).
We look forward to seeing you!
