NEAS conducting groundbreaking trial on cardiac arrest patients


A study aimed at finding the best way to treat people who have suffered a cardiac arrest outside of hospital is underway in the North East.

Traditionally, adrenaline has been used - but some research suggest this could actually be harmful.

The blind study, developed by Warwick University, will see 50% of cardiac arrest patients in the North East given a salt-water solution instead.

There is a process for those patients who do not wish to participate. Further details below:
