On Friday 24 June at 13:00, Mathilde Stærk defends her PhD dissertation entitled "Improving the first five minutes of resuscitation after in-hospital cardiac arrest".

Early initiation of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early defibrillation are key elements to improve survival after in-hospital cardiac arrest. However, little is known about how basic life support performance can be optimized during the first few minutes of cardiac arrest and how automated external defibrillators can be used to improve outcomes from in-hospital cardiac arrest.

A new PhD-project from Aarhus University, Health, have investigated the initial patient management and treatment during unannounced in-situ simulated in-hospital cardiac arrest and the reasons for successful or inadequate initial resuscitation efforts, as well as the distribution of automated external defibrillators in Danish hospitals and if early rhythm analysis is associated with return of spontaneous circulation.

The summary is written by the PhD student.

The defence is public and takes place in the Auditorium, Randers Regional Hospital, Skovlyvej 15, 8930 Randers NØ. Please read the attached press release for more information.
