Our very own Honorary Clinical Research Fellow, Dr Richard Lyon, has triumphed at the 2012 European Resuscitation Council Congress, held in Vienna, where his research, 'A program of Education, Audit and Leadership can improve outcomes after Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest - the TOPCAT2', was the prize talk, beating off over 400 research abstracts from around the world.

Watch Dr Lyon's  award winning lecture on the TOPCAT 2 project.

In addition to the win for Dr Lyon's research with EMeRGE four London's Air Ambulance research posters were chosen to be showcased at the event - 'Tissue oxygen saturation in pre-hospital trauma patients', 'Pre-hospital therapeutic hypothermia using intra-nasal cooling', 'A simple algorithm for the treatment of traumatic cardiac arrest' and 'Is there a role for pre-hospital  chest ultrasound in trauma patients?'

Dr Lyon was also invited as a member of faculty to give a talk on Therapeutic hypothermia, a topic which saw him lead the brain cooling study with London's Air Ambulance patients and hit the BBC Headlines in May.
