This final video looks at post-resuscitative care. This includes proper management of blood pressure, blood sugar, treatment of coronary artery disease and initiation of therapeutic hypothermia.
So I focus mostly on that last one: pay attention mostly to how to induce it and in whom you’d induce it.
