The PitCard for Cardiac Arrest
Helping to Organize the Chaos of Cardiac Arrest Treatment

Managing a cardiac arrest can be very stressful, and a recent study shows that refresher training every two years is not adequate to maintain the unique skills needed to care for the patient.


Addessing this need, the PitCard for Cardiac Arrest is a real-time reference card for:

. Quickly listing the interventions defined by your service, and
. Organizing when they should be done to best follow your service protocols.

Like a race team during a pit stop, an organized approach with defined roles is critical to managing a successful cardiac arrest scene.

Using the pit crew approach and ArrestPAC’s PitCard for Cardiac Arrest your response team has a tool to ensure all interventions are performed on time and nothing is delayed or forgotten.

When you start, everyone should know their roles and the duties expected of them. When you are done, the team can be sure they have provided the most complete and efficient care.

The PitCard for Cardiac Arrest defines:

• A team leader who has the global view and understanding of the ongoing event
• The roles of the individual rescuers based on their level of training and capabilities
• When certain interventions are most optimal — for example, delaying the placement of an advanced airway, so that procedure does not distract the team from other time critical interventions like continued good CPR with rotation of providers

The PitCard for Cardiac Arrest comes in a standard protocol that closely follows the recommendations of the American Heart Association guidelines for management of sudden cardiac arrest, plus ArrestPAC can customize the PitCard for Cardiac Arrest to fit your local service guidelines.
