Two heads facing each other with cogs

"There is an increasing body of clinical evidence that states, that for some, bystanders or staff, assisting in, or witness to, an Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA) resuscitation attempt, there may be psychological harm. It is certainly true that involvement in this event will probably never be forgotten, but there may also be distress and for some this will become profound, with debilitating and clinical implications".
