Podcast#7: Pa.R.A.Me.D.I.C

How we perform CPR is about to change . . . or is it? In this podcast I get to chat to Mike Smyth, a research fellow for Warwick University, who is with the West Midlands Ambulance service and is trialing the use of the Lucas Device, a mechanical chest compression device used in CPR. In what could potential revolutionise preHospital resuscitation if found to be of any benefit, the Pa.R.A.Me.D.I.C trial (PreHospital randomised assessment of a mechanical compression device in cardiac arrest), is the first step in establishing data about it’s use in the field. I caught up with Mike at the Ambulance safety conference and chatted about how the trial was being implemented, how it was going so far and when we could expect some results?

I’ve broken the podcasts into two part’s to keep it down to the required 15 to 20 minutes for easier listening.
