About Us

The Resuscitation Research Group at the University of Edinburgh is committed to research and clinical improvement with a focus on saving lives, having fun and being awesome.

We have a range of interests themed around optimising the management of critically ill patients and include the physiology and clinical management of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, non-technical skills in time critical resuscitation, the physiology of fluid resuscitation and the psychology of critical interpersonal interactions during the chain of survival.

RRG helped develop and are working with a range of partner organisations to deliver Scotland’s strategy for Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest. The Strategy aims to Save 1000 lives, train 500,000 Scots in CPR and position Scotland as an international leader in OHCA management by 2020.
