Michael Kellum, MD, FACEP, FAAP

 

Cardiac Arrest: Past, Present and Future

 

 

In this fascinating presentation, Dr. Kellum will share with you his experiences, observations and insights of cardiac arrest gleaned over 3 decades. He will share how his perspective changed as he moved from being a code-blue responder to an EMS Medical Director and a non-academic aligned researcher.

 

Dr. Kellum will share the importance of understanding and appreciating pathophysiology – and using this perspective to critically ask “Why” we do what we do (and are told to do). He will address selected cardiac arrest issues including: chest compressions, defibrillators, the role of the untrained bystander, drug administration, EMS system issues, and how cardiac arrest management can be accomplished with only 2-3 responders.

 

Dr. Kellum is a recently retired EMS Medical Director for Mercy Health System in Janesville Wisconsin. He is certified in both Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine. He was with Mercy since November of 1994 and has been a student of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) since 1986. He is the documentation author and primary developer for the Rock and Walworth County Sudden Death Project that began in early 2004. This project was the first in the country to utilize CardioCerebral Resuscitation after it was implemented in Tucson Arizona in late 2003. He is still actively involved in educating Emergency Medical Service providers, Paramedic students, hospital personnel, and laypersons; and he continues to research clinical aspects of SCA.
