Professor Stephen Bernard leads team in successful NHMRC project grant for the "Reduction of oxygen after cardiac arrest: The EXACT trial”
The project has been awarded a total of $1,891,020.50 in funding by NHMRC.
The multi-centre, randomised, controlled trial will seek to determine whether reducing oxygen administration to target a normal
level as soon as possible following successful resuscitation from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, compared to current practice of maintaining
100% oxygen, improves patient survival at hospital discharge.
The trial will be coordinated through the Australian Resuscitation Outcome Consortium (AUS-ROC) based at Monash University, will commence in 2016 and aims to enrol 1300 patients over four years.
The members of the research team include:
Associate Professor Karen Smith from Ambulance Victoria
Professor Peter Cameron from Monash University
Professor Judith Finn from Curtin University of Technology
Professor Hugh Grantham from The Flinders University of South Australia
Doctor Janet Bray from Monash University
Doctor Dion Stub from the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute
Professor Ian Rogers from St John Ambulance Western Australia
Professor Gavin Perkins from University of Warwick
