Resuscitation
Response to COVID
When COVID-19
started, staff in the
Cardiac Intensive Care
Unit (CICU) faced new
challenges and had to shift
some of our priorities.
The Resuscitation Committee

goals driven by evidence, such as

rhythms and the delivery of
high-quality CPR. The pandemic
forced the committee to look at
how to keep our team safe while
continuing to provide resuscitative
measures to our patients. It took
interdisciplinary work and innovation
to achieve this goal.

pandemic, team members brought
forward concerns from their different
departments and worked together
to find solutions to each of them.
Early examples included placing a
drape over the patient before CPR,
implementing hands-only CPR on
COVID-positive patients, creating
dedicated clean hands to retrieve
