CPR expert witnesses will have varied experience with health-related issues, as CPR is often administered as an emergency response. CPR, which stands for “cardiopulmonary resuscitation,” is an emergency procedure performed when an individual has stopped breathing, often due to cardiac arrest. CPR expert consulting may provide insightful information for cases involving such areas as emergency medical response, nursing, clinical nursing, pediatrics, the emergency/911 response industry, emergency medical technician-paramedics (ENT-Paramedic), and other numerous facets of the medical field, each of which may become the center of a CPR-related court case.
Since CPR is administered as a lifesaving effort, CPR experts often have experience working with emergency medical services (EMS), emergency management, and other disciplines involved with emergency response teams. CPR experts may have also worked as firefighters, paramedics, registered nurses, and/or pediatric nurse practitioners, and additonal medical positions.
CPR expert witnesses may also be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, since failing to follow proper protocol in an emergency situation may lead to further injury or death, which would be grounds for possible lawsuits. CPR experts may also have experience with medical transportation, since emergency response teams must often locate and travel to individuals in need of CPR.
