Post-Cardiac Arrest Care
Post-resuscitation care is delivered by many difference groups of healthcare providers over many days. Any inadvertent variance can complicate effective and comprehensive post-arrest treatment and management strategies.
A post-resuscitation care checklist and improve clinical care and communication to optimize monitoring, management, team performance, and process of care for patients that have survived cardiac arrest.
The PREP Checklist
Post Resuscitation Evaluation & Planning
The PREP Checklist is a communication and planning tool that is used at the beginning of each shift. Providers caring for the post-arrest patient review the checklist with the clinical team to discuss, adjust, and confirm optimal post-arrest management and care.
