Greetings All
regarding abstract #3: I started teaching ACLS about a year ago and right now the AHA is pushing there being no need for pulse checks and basing decisions off of EtCO2: <10 during CPR fix the bad CPR if possible, <10 for more than 20min after trying to fix it resuscitation can be stopped, between ~15-25 meaning good CPR then a jump to 40-50 etc = ROSC and with a BP even if soft, a rhythm that looks appropriate and an EtCO2 that high you need a pulse to generate those numbers. So I was under the impression that checking for a pulse during cpr isn't necessary and checking when you have definitive signs of ROSC it isn't helpful, not to mention we all suck finding them in a code as you mentioned. Am I teaching my ACLS/ACLS-EP students incorrectly?
