CPR Command System

Mark Sawdon is the creator and owner of the CPR Command System. This copyright and trademark product is a predetermined, systematic approach to delivering a cardiac arrest resuscitation. This idea came to Mark while he was teaching ACLS and PALS to both pre-hospital and in-hospital providers that were looking for an approach to mega code. The CPR Command System is built on the solid foundation of the evidence based medicine brought to us by the American Heart Association and is a crew resource management tool to be used during training or an actual event. Mark is doing this training at several locations including hospitals, fire departments, and surgery centers. The CPR Command System is the current protocol used during all cardiac arrests at Skagit Valley Hospital located in Arlington, WA!
