Pre Alert

So Welcome back to another Roadside to Resus episode!

Pre Alerts are a key part of the interface between pre hospital and in hospital care of the critically unwell patient, when made and received in an effective manner they can really benefit the patient and the system. But too often we hear of friction associated with pre alerts and recent discussions on social media has really highlighted this.

In this episode we explore the pre alert, the guidance that exists already on the topic, the challenges of both making and receiving those pre alerts and our four major questions; why we pre alert, what we should pre alert, how to pre alert and when to pre alert.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
