Work in Progress Seminar: Can We Predict the Future? The Perils of Prognostication in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Resuscitations

March 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Hurlburt Auditorium, St. Paul's Hospital
1081 Burrard Street

Brian Grunau, MD, M.HSc.
Scientist, CHÉOS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, UBC

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitations are common within our healthcare system, however robust data or guidelines to inform decisions of prognostication are lacking. The BC Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium maintains a registry of consecutive out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in BC’s urban settings. Dr. Grunau will report characteristics and outcomes of our local resuscitations, highlighting biases introduced by intra-arrest prognostication and providing insights into optimal strategies for decisions of withdrawal of care.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
