The Resuscitation Crisis Manual
The Resuscitation Crisis Manual (The RCM) was first published in 2018 and is a collection of potentially life threatening crises and life saving procedures that Emergency Physician, EMS, Critical Care Docs, Nurses, & other Resuscitation Clinicians manage in everyday practice.
Based on the cockpit QRH (quick reference handbook) used by the airline industry, and using CRM (crew resource management) principles developed for aviation safety, the RCM brings tried and tested checklist instruction to the field of Patient Safety.
Using accepted national and international resuscitation guidelines, as well as input from critical care special interest groups, the RCM is presented in highly functional, robust and fluid resistant material, ideal for the resus room environment.
Consisting of both a Crisis Protocol section, which provides a checklist of tasks to complete when the diagnosis is known, and a Crisis Procedure section for stabilizing crashing patients, the RCM provides concise, clear and simply worded instructions for use by any health professional leading or assisting in crisis management.
