Transport of patients with ongoing CPR to the correct treatment center is a high risk but potentially lifesaving intervention. Mechanical CPR (mCPR) devices are recommended to reduce risk and maintain chest compression quality. However, such transports have inherent pitfalls to both patient and provider safety. This is a poorly studied field of our practice and no clear consensus for how this should be done exists. In this podcast episode, we are joined by Dr. Per Olav Berve to discuss the practical challenges of these missions, CPR physiology, hemodynamics, and hopefully some hard-earned advice on how to get a patient in cardiac arrest to hospital in a survivable physiologic state.
