In a previous post a described an event driven domain design to run a resuscitation protocol. I also mentioned that running this protocol in practice can have some pitfalls. One of these pitfalls is the use of a defibrillator that is required to apply a cardio conversion by delivering a shock. We have to test that this cannot ever occur.
For some time now I have been thinking of writing an app to help with running a resuscitation protocol. The resuscitation protocol as provided by the Dutch Advanced Pediatric Life Support is rather straight forward. Yet to adhere to this protocol in a stressful situation for a patient with a life threatening condition is a challenge to many physicians or health care providers.
