Miranda Odam

I joined EMERGE in July 2014, and have since integrated into an active, exciting and motivated team of research, clinical and support staff.

I come from the clinical speciality of emergency nursing mostly in Western Australia, and a research/public health background having completed a Masters in Public Health & Tropical Medicine. I also have experience working in areas of conflict with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Africa and the Middle East. I believe research is all about people – the benefit to patients and the belief research instils in staff; we all know why we do research which makes us feel very positive about our roles and the achievements to which we contribute.

Trials

First “First Responder” Study

While considerable efforts have been made to determine the best ways to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for persons suffering an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and also to understand what the physical and psychological impact on the victim might be, very little is known about what actually occurs when a lay bystander is suddenly confronted by someone in cardiac arrest.
