    Episode 9: Saving the Unsaveable

    Shock…no response…shock…no response…shock…no response…then what?

    In this episode, Nicole Kupchik, MN, RN, interviews Dr. Demetri Yannopoulos, professor of medicine and emergency medicine at the University of Minnesota, the Robert Eddy endowed chair in cardiovascular resuscitation, and medical director of the Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium.

    They discuss a promising new protocol for patients who are difficult to resuscitate - such as those with refractory VF - and the roles played by mechanical CPR, ECMO, and the cath lab in treating these patients.
