The RCM eBook


The Resuscitation Crisis Manual (The RCM), is a collection of the initial critical actions required to temporize life-threatening crises in crashing patients.

Based on the cockpit QRH (quick reference handbook) used in the airline industry, and using crew resource management principles developed for aviation safety, the RCM brings tried and tested checklist guidance to the field of Patient Safety.
Each protocol has been written by an expert in the field, reassuring the clinician that content is both reliable and current.
  • An interactive Index for fast navigation
  • A return to Index/Crisis Prevention button on all pages 
  • Direct link buttons allowing immediate access to related tabs
  • Works with Apple and Android mobile devices plus desktop and laptop computers
Divided into two sections, The RCM consists of Crisis Management Protocols, each providing directives to complete when the diagnosis is known, and a second section outlining Crisis Procedures as well as Procedural Checklists. It provides clear, concise instruction for use by any health professional leading or assisting in crisis management.

A collaboration by Scott Weingart, critical care clinician and internationally renowned medical podcaster (EMcrit) with David Borshoff, anaesthesiologist and author of the popular Anaesthetic Crisis Manual (The ACM), The Resuscitation Crisis Manual will provide excellent support to all involved in resuscitation.
