Tomorrow I will be travelling to Vienna, Austria to take part in the Resuscitation 2012 congress organised by the European Resuscitation Council. At this annual congress, which will take place from Thursday 18 October until Saturday 20 October 2012, I will be one of the members of the official Social Media Team. Our team will work HARD&FAST to bring you all the news and updates live during the Resuscitation 2012 congress.
Just recently my colleague and I have published two research papers. I am very proud of the first one titled “Mobile phone in the Chain of Survival”, which was published after a lot of research in the Resuscitation journal. This short paper gives an overview of vast possibilities possessed by mobile phones to be of assistance in medical emergencies. It represents a continuation of my work with CPR mobile applications. I have also now published a video of the lecture I gave during the Resuscitation 2010 congress about the same subject. You can watch my 10 minute lecture here, and read our paper at the Resuscitation website.
The second paper we wrote appeared in the Croatian journal Lijecnicki Vjesnik (in English this would be something like Physician’s Newsletter). It is a case report demonstrating a patient with smell disorders, which we suspect were caused be lacidipine, a calcium channel blocker used to treat hypertension. So far this drug has not been linked with smell disorders, but other calcium channel blockers from the same group are well known to cause such problems. The paper is written in Croatian, but its abstracts is available in English – Can lacidipine cause smell disorders? A case report.
From 2nd until 4th of December 2010, the Resuscitation Congress organized by the European Resuscitation Council will take place in Porto, Portugal. This congress takes place each year in a different European country and is famous for great scientific programs.
I will be participating with two papers. On Saturday, 4 December in room Miragaia between 11:00 – 12:30, I will talk about mobile phones in the chain of survival. During the talk I will also mention my CPR invention which utilizes mobile phones to offer CPR prompts & feedback. I am also the coauthor of another paper which will be presented as a poster. Paper titled “Comparing methods for weight estimation of children” will be displayed in the Poster Room. The authors will be answering questions during the Poster Tour 22 on Friday, 3 December during lunch.
See you in Porto!
