Having grown up on the north east coast of Scotland, Emma moved, aged 17, to the bright lights of Edinburgh to embark on her undergraduate degree in French from the University of Edinburgh.
After graduating in 2011, she has constantly been back and forth between Scotland and France but eventually settled back in her favourite city of Edinburgh and began working with the EMERGE team as a Research Administrator in August 2015. Since 2013, Emma has also been working towards achieving a MA in Education (specialising in Applied Linguistics) with The Open University and hopes to develop a career in research in the future.
When not at work Emma maintains a busy lifestyle with a nice balance of live music shows, cats and crosswords!

Prescription of Analgesia in Emergency Medicine (POEM)
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.

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.Read more
