Welcome to DutchResus!DutchResus is a blog on resuscitation by Hans van Schuppen MD, an anesthesiologist from the Netherlands passionate about resuscitation. I hope to provide you with interesting info on resuscitation, emergency anesthesia, airway management, prehospital care, crisis resource management and all kinds of other interesting things I come across. For the past years, I have been learning through social media (#FOAMed) and with this blog I hope to give something in return, hoping that you will provide cutting edge critical care to patients in need. Cheers, Hans
