This webinar will identify those patients who may benefit from immediate percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) during cardiac arrest. PCI is also known as coronary angioplasty, a nonsurgical procedure that improves blood flow to your heart. In addition, cutting edge use of mechanical CPR and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to support these patients and preserve the myocardium during coronary intervention will be discussed.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
