SPHERe (Emergency Resuscitation) Course

Course Overview

The SPHERe™ course provides the pre-hospital medical professional with advanced training in pre-hospital resuscitation to enable them to deliver elite, high-quality care in the critical emergency of cardiac arrest. Until now, there has been no standard in pre-hospital resuscitation training. To fulfil this need, Prometheus Medical, in partnership with leading members of the UK resuscitation community, developed the SPHERe™ course. The course focuses on the provision of the most advanced standards of resuscitation for both medical and traumatic cardiac arrest in the pre-hospital setting. Training is ideal for those working regularly in the pre-hospital environment and the course is approved by the College of Paramedics.

Aim

The SPHERe™ course aims to equip students with the essential scientific knowledge, technical and non-technical skills to deliver the most advanced level of pre-hospital resuscitation.

Entry Criteria

Course Content

As with all Prometheus courses, the emphasis is on short lectures, high instructor to student ratios, supervised practical skill sessions and scenario-based moulages. Training is delivered by experts in the field of pre-hospital resuscitation. The course covers essential resuscitation science, including the pathophysiology of cardiac arrest, the mechanics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, advanced therapies such as therapeutic hypothermia, together with non-technical skills including resuscitation leadership and performance feedback.
