Complete the Cardiac Arrest Section

Use the Cardiac Arrest section to document all aspects of a cardiac arrest, including the ultimate outcome of the worked arrest. The Cardiac Arrest section contains four subsections: General Information, AED, Disposition, and Procedures.

Required fields in this section may vary based on the rules set by your department. Certain additional fields required by CARES (the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival) display only when enabled by your Administrator.

Note: This section and its subsections only become visible when you indicate in the Chief Complaint section that the patient suffered a cardiac arrest.

See Cardiac Arrest Fields for definitions of certain terms, explanations on how to enter information in unique fields, and valuable shortcuts.
