Resuscitation Research Group (RRG)

The Resuscitation Research Group at the University of Edinburgh is a collaborative involving the University, the Scottish Ambulance Service and the Emergency Department at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh along with other academic and industry partners. The group lead Dr Gareth Clegg is a Senior Lecturer at the University and Honorary Consultant at in the Emergency Department at RIE. He is joined by Clinical Fellow Dr Richard Lyon, Resuscitation Officer Steven Short and Scottish Ambulance Service Colin Crookston  along with a select group of  enthusiasts keen to see cutting edge research translate into clinically relevant patient outcomes.

The group’s research interests are themed around optimising the management of critically ill patients and include the physiology and clinical management of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, non-technical skills in time critical resuscitation, the physiology of fluid resuscitation and the psychology of critical interpersonal interactions during the chain of survival. The group coordinates the Resuscitation Rapid Response Unit (3RU) team along with a range of other projects relating to all all elements of the OHCA response ‘system’ summarised in the Chain of Survival.

We are committed to research and clinical improvement with a focus on saving lives and being awesome…

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.
