Emergency Preparedness using Virtual Reality

Penn's Center for Resuscitation Science has created the first national U.S. clinical registry focused on therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest.

PATH includes information on cardiac arrest events occurring in the pre-hospital and in-hospital settings and will focus extensively on those patients who have undergone therapeutic hypothermia (TH) after initial resuscitation form cardiac arrest.

PATH is a web-based registry that will allow institution's to benchmark against other institutions across the country. The purpose of this database is to have a comprehensive look at cardiac arrest care and outcomes in those patients undergoing TH. The database will also be open for research proposals for those participating in PATH.

If you are interested in contributing to the PATH database, or have additional questions, please contact David Buckler at david.buckler@uphs.upenn.edu or 215-615-4630.
