World restart a heart day competition

“All citizens of the world can save a life”.

With these words, the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) launched the first global initiative – World Restart a Heart (WRAH) – to increase public awareness and the rates of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for victims of cardiac arrest.

To support this initiative EUSEM is organising a video competition.

Serving in Ukraine

Our respected and very engaged EUSEM member Kasia Hampton is helping in Ukraine in any way she can. The two projects below need help with several materials and vehicles. Please have a look at the lists and see if you can help in any way.

1. In-hospital (Khmelnytsky, more peaceful area)

I am a volunteer with Khmelnytsky City Children’s Hospital. An amazing hospital, totally underfunded and under-resourced, but with a very dedicated team. They do their best with what they have and they are super eager to learn more. We are working on their POCUS skills, since they don’t have a CT scan or MRI in house. So great ultrasound skills are vital in their case. They also don’t have a few other very useful things. With that I was hoping you could help us find some things, even used but still usable:

    • C-Mac videolaryngoscope with reusable blades of different sizes (or equivalent);
    • Reusable flexible fiberoptic laryngoscope;
    • Cart-based, laptop type ultrasound devices; 
    • Sterile sleeves with sterile gel for ultrasound-guided central venous access and other sterile procedures;
    • Mucosal atomization devices for intranasal medication delivery;
    • EZ-IO drills and needles (or an equivalent system)

2. Pre-hospital (Kharkiv, hot zone)

My second project is entirely prehospital and it consists of assisting a team from Kharkiv in trying to build out their TacMed Evacuation capability. Here we are looking for the following items:

    • 4-wheel drive vehicles, used ones of course - buying new ones is pointless in this area, that can be repurposed as tactical medical evacuation vehicles. This requires them to have a way to place the patient in supine position. Classic ambulances are out of question, because they are being targeted and shot at. We have actually even thought of funeral cars, in the hope of distracting the Russian invaders
    • Basic ambulance equipment such as monitoring devices, oxygen tanks, and all the consumables (syringes, IVs, etc)
    • Lightweight-evacuation stretchers, soft stretchers in dark, poorly visible colors
    • They also need an ongoing supply of TacMed supplies such as tourniquets, combat gauze, chest seals, needles for PTX drainage, bandages and alike.
