SCAS23 ‘Getting our SHIFT together’ was staged at the Hilton Doubletree at Edinburgh Airport on October 6th. It was a highly informative and entertaining day with a series of TED-style talks including keynotes by Prof Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director for the Scottish Government and Professor Lionel Lamhaut, program lead for Prehospital ECMO-CPR at the University Hospital of Necker-Paris. Key themes included Health Inequalities and Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest, high quality pre-hospital Advanced Life Support, ECMO-CPR, bystander aftercare and the GoodSAM responder app.
