Beginning in 2015, Advanced Medical Transport (AMT) embarked on a journey to improve outcomes from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). At the time, AMT asked themselves an important question – what makes a resuscitation program successful? This led them to create one of the most impressive resuscitation programs in the country with the objective to improve emergency care and patient outcomes by concentrating on eight interdependent pillars of success. This webinar will take you through the development of each of those pillars and identify with whom you should collaborate in order to make your resuscitation program successful. AMT will also share with you their impressive results that are being seen in Peoria every day thanks to these pillars of success, which rival some of the best in the country.
