Epinephrine in cardiac arrest

MEDEST - December 6, 2016
"Take home points for future improvement.
  1. Train to reach an US guided arterial line in cardiac arrest
  2. Check aortic pressure via peripheral or central (femoral) arterial line
  3. Give Adrenaline intrarterially
  4. Target Adrenaline doses to maintain a good aortic pressure"
Tanks to Jim Manning who inspired this post with his talk Rethinking Adrenaline in Cardiac Arrest
