Public Invited to Ambulance Service Presentation on Improving Outcomes from Cardiac Arrest

21 January 2015

Members of the public are being given the opportunity to find out about how Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust is helping patients who suffer a cardiac arrest.

In a pre-Trust Board presentation, Associate Medical Director Dr Steven Dykes and Clinical Development Manager Jason Carlyon will outline how the Trust is improving outcomes for patients by using the Chain of Survival concept:

  • ensuring early recognition of cardiac arrest
  • early cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • early defibrillation
  • early advanced care.

Jason will be presenting his work on CPR training with schoolchildren and Steven will be discussing the role of Arrest Team Leaders in Hull, Doncaster, Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. They use recommendations from the latest evidence to deliver effective team leadership at cardiac arrest incidents, using specialist equipment and advanced drug protocols.

The presentation will take place between 11.00am and 11.30am, ahead of the next Trust Board Meeting being held in public on Tuesday 27 January 2015 at The Source at Meadowhall in Sheffield. The main Trust Board Meeting will commence at 11.45am.

If you would like to attend the meeting, please register your interest by emailing
