Warning

Current approaches to managing any Resuscitation within NHS Highland is based on whether the casualty is on a respiratory pathway or a non-respiratory pathway.
The Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that you are required to wear during a Resuscitation has been updated and relates to the specific pathway the casualty is on.
On the 11th July 2022 COVID-19 guidance on these pathways returned to the National Infection Prevention and Control Manual (NIPCM).
