<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Chris Stratford

The purpose of this research, in conjunction with emergency physicians at Primary Children’s and the University of Utah, was to evaluate the effectiveness of ECMO use in pediatric hypothermic cardiac arrests. This research helped modify the Utah State protocol for hypothermic cardiac arrest in children to incorporate appropriate treatment and transport decisions for EMTs and paramedics in order to increase survival and positive outcome rates of children who experience hypothermic cardiac arrest.
