Rob Hannigan (pictured with Senior Research Nurse Allan MacRaild) took part in the PATCH-ED trial in 2016 following a number of unexplained blackouts. The results of his PATCH highlighted some dangerous arrhythmias including 24 seconds when his heart stopped beating entirely. Six months after his participation in the PATCH-ED trial, Rob met up with Allan to share his experiences.

In September 2016, former EMERGE research nurse Polly and I attended the 2nd Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care in Sitges (near Barcelona).

EMERGE was recently delighted to be invited to be the face of the CHSS Summer Fundraising campaign.

Both studies are trialling technology that hopes to improve diagnosis and therefore patient care. So far both studies are going really well.
