Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest: a Resource for Responders
An Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) impacts on many people - not only the person who has had the cardiac arrest and family members, but also those individuals who respond to an OHCA. This resource aims to provide support and guidance for those attending an OHCA in a trained capacity.
- Increase awareness of the potential physical, psychological and social consequences of OHCA on those involved, in whatever capacity
- Facilitate those responding to an OHCA to recognise the aftercare and rehabilitation needs of those affected by the event
- Enable those responding to OHCA to support individuals, within their scope of responsibility, and to sign-post individuals to other, more specialised services, where appropriate
- Provide a one-stop directory of resources and organisations available to support those on whom OHCA has impacted
