Just curious, do any of you have protocols or procedures for talking to patients on what, if anything, they remember during their cardiac arrest after they wake up?
My hospital would like more information. Not even sure it is out there.
Thanks so much!
I don't know p&p, especially since I don't work in the hospital anymore. But as a student I had a patient one day, then the next day when I wasn't there he coded and they brought him back. He spent 2 weeks in the ICU then came back to the unit I was doing my preceptorship on and I had him as a patient again. We were talking about what happened and he said the last thing he remembered was hearing the nurse say "Oh ****!" We asked her about it and she verified that was accurate
