Through the shared mission of increasing survival from cardiac arrest, the Resuscitation Academy Foundation of Seattle, Washington, The American Heart Association (AHA), and Laerdal Medical have joined forces to create programs for prehospital and public safety responders.
“It takes a system to save a victim.” – Resuscitation Academy
This suite of Resuscitation Academy Programs is designed to strengthen the chain of survival from evaluation of overall system effectiveness all the way through individual responder education. These programs are built on the foundation of the RA’s expertise and success in increasing out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) survival rates in Seattle, WA and the proven RQI methodology of verified competence and mastery learning.
Four New Programs:
Designed to provide telecommunicators and PSAPs with quality, ongoing learning, practice, analytics, and quality improvement review for managing sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) calls.
A low-dose, high frequency blended learning program for EMS providers that promotes mastery of high-quality CPR in order to improve patient outcomes.
A High-Performance CPR program designed for those who respond to medical emergencies as a team. It builds on the foundation of individual skills in order to maximize effectiveness of team response and improve outcomes in cardiac arrest calls through quarterly team scenarios, real time feedback, and peer-led debriefs.
