The ambulance service in Johnson County, Johnson County Med-Act and its partners, are going to be on the cutting edge with using cooling therapy for patients in cardiac arrest. During the past several years, research in both prehospital and hospital environments is showing that cooling the "Code Blue" patient results in more likelihood of both a successful cardiac resuscitation and intact brain function upon recovery. Intuitively, this makes sense, as we have known for quite some time that people who have near drowning in very cold water have a longer amount of time for the possibility of successful rescue. As I said in the title, very "cool." (groan...)
Observations, Opinions, and Whatnot from the South Part of Town
What's this blog like?
Well, this blog is like...sitting around the kitchen table with friends and family...like a game of Rook with friends...sitting on the porch or deck or driveway with friends and neighbors...come on grab a drink and have a seat! You're in Ruskin Heights, or Terrace Lake Gardens or Stratford Estates for example. We might talk about anything--the new people moving in down the street, the economy, the Chiefs, crime, the mayor, health care, national new, world news, religion, cars, politics...careful now! Wide ranging, opinionated, but always respectful. In the end, we are all neighbors.
