Posted by Emma Ward | 18 Nov 2016

The cold weather has set in and Christmas is upon us. We’re all extremely lucky to have roofs over our heads and fully stocked cupboards but there are many people in the local area who aren’t as fortunate. For this reason, we’ve decided to set up a food bank collection again this festive season.

Edinburgh Emergency Nursing in Barcelona

Posted by Adam Lloyd | 18 Oct 2016

In September 2016, former EMERGE research nurse Polly and I attended the 2nd Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care in Sitges (near Barcelona). Over 240 abstracts were submitted from 30 countries and we were privileged to be invited to present 3 separate pieces of work. These were: ‘24 hours in A&E: a video analysis of nurses’ clinical and non-clinical task performance during live clinical resuscitation episodes’; ‘It’s a silent leadership’: an interview and questionnaire study investigating staff conceptualisations of leadership during emergency department resuscitation’; ‘Clinical engagement with emergency medicine research’.

EMERGE – proud to be the face of the CHSS Summer 2016 fundraising campaign

Posted by Dr Matt Reed | 4 Aug 2016

EMERGE was recently delighted to be invited to be the face of the CHSS Summer Fundraising campaign. CHSS have supported some of the exciting research EMERGE has initiated such as the PATCH-ED study looking at patients presenting to the emergency department with syncope (fainting) of unknown cause, and the IPED Study is looking at patients presenting again to the emergency department with palpitations of unknown cause. Both studies are trialling technology that hopes to improve diagnosis and therefore patient care. So far both studies are going really well.

What we can learn from bystanders about cardiac arrest

What we can learn from bystanders about cardiac arrest

Posted by Joel Symonds | 17 Mar 2016

For over 40 years, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been recognised as a vital aspect of the treatment of cardiac arrest; originally seen as solely the premise of medical professionals, the concept of bystander or lay-rescuer CPR has increased in popularity and social visibility over recent years. Major national campaigns in the press, media and online have encouraged bystanders to attempt CPR in the event of witnessing an out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and this process has been steadily and regularly simplified over the years, in an effort to make attempting lay-rescuer CPR less daunting.
