Minutes to Live

Synopsis
Resuscitation. By depicting three typical scenes, demonstrates the importance of team work and the need to be familiar with the latest developments in both equipment and procedures. The increasing use of equipment such as defibrillators and non-invasive temporary pacemakers, both inside and outside the hospital, represents a challenge that needs to be met by all those involved in the more technical aspects of advanced resuscitation techniques.
