19513-Response Bags / Cardiac Arrest Process

I am studying a MSc in Integrated Product Design at Brunel University.

I am moving into the second phase of my project and my tutors have advised me to focus on redesigning the Response Bag used by Paramedics during a ‘Medical Cardiac Arrest’ incident to improve efficiency in rapid response care in addition to reducing waste of medical equipment as a result of cross contamination.

 

For this phase of the project I have been tasked with collecting a detailed step by step breakdown of the Paramedics journey during a ‘Medical Cardiac Arrest’ (which I understand is not a straight forward linear process). In addition to the specifications of Response Bags used during this situation as well as the individual contents within.

    Step by step break down:

    • Please see the attached Cardiac Arrest Checklist.
    • The Trust follows the National Clinical Practice Guidelines (JRCALC) that has a step by step guide for ambulance Paramedics to follow.  For further information on this we would advise that you contact JRCALC directly.
