CPR in the age of social distancing
In today’s climate of social distancing to control the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), self-directed education and training through Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) and HeartCode Complete support continued CPR competence and preserve current safety protocols. Designed for individual learning, the programs allow providers to remain at the point of care and avoid the closeness of a classroom setting.
“Our technology platforms, simulation stations and solution delivery teams are fully available to health care systems during this critical time,” said Brian Eigel, Ph.D., chief operating officer of RQI Partners, a partnership between the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical.
RQI Partners advises medical teams to follow the infection control protocols of their individual facilities and provides guidance from Laerdal Medical in “Basic Cleaning and Maintenance for RQI and HeartCode Complete Equipment and Stations.”
Laerdal Medical has a series of webinars available, “Helping Prepare Your Organization for Coronavirus (COVID-19),” for hospital health care teams to test and improve systems for infection control, personal protective equipment, and management of exposure to high-risk communicable respiratory illness.
RQI Partners is thankful to all healthcare providers for their unwavering commitment during this uncertain time as we all hope to help the health and well-being of people everywhere.
