Dr. Wanscher (Denmark)

In-hospital resuscitation: Dr.Wanscher

The European Association of Surfing Doctors (EASD) are delighted to welcome Dr. Michael Wanscher and Dr. Steen Barnung to Ireland to speak on Pre- and In-hospital resuscitation strategies in accidental hypothermia at the 3rd Annual Conference in Surfing Medicine, The Glasshouse, Sligo on 10th September 2014.

Steen Barnung

Pre-hospital perspective: Dr.Barnung

Dr. Barnung and Wanscher will share their experience from the Danish Præstø Fjord boating accident in 2011 where seven (7) patients with profound (Median Temperature: 18.4°C; Range: 15.5-20.2°C) accidental hypothermic circulatory arrest were successfully resuscitated using a management approach that employed extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) rewarming, successive periods of therapeutic hypothermia and sedated normothermia, and intensive neurorehabilitation. Furthermore, seven (7) other hypothermic victims (Minimum Core Temperature: 23°C) that did not suffer circulatory arrest also survived the accident.
