Defib timing in resuscitation guidelines questioned

Comment

We have always used 'stacked shocks' without the compressions in a specialist PPCI cardiology dept I currently work for. If I attend a cardiac arrest which is unexpected, I assess accordingly and if stacked shocks are required, then thats what I do. As for the 'troll' who has issues with your journalist on here, dont feed it! Im sick and tired of reading the vitriolic comments this troll has and thier anger is disproportionate and scary. I hope this 'person' is not an RN as I would question their ability to behave as a professional with patients.
