Assistance Outside the ACCU

The trauma ODP (bleep 1494) attends trauma calls and cardiac arrests. If you need assistance with an unstable patient on the wards or non-trauma patients in A&E Resus (e.g. intubation) you can bleep them and ask for assistance if they are not busy elsewhere. Another source of potential support when managing unstable patients on the wards is the Critical Care Outreach Team.

The ODP or CCOT can help you with equipment, monitoring, technical support etc.
