ERC Guidelines for Resuscitation 2015

The 2015 European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines are based on an extensive international review of all the science supporting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The 2015 International Consensus on CPR Science, is also published in Resuscitation today. This year also marks the 55th anniversary since CPR was first developed.
The updated ERC Guidelines include detailed advice for healthcare professionals on how to treat cardiac arrest and how to continue to treat the patient after the heart has been restarted. The ERC Guidelines 2015 include detailed instructions to members of the public who may be in a position to save a life by providing bystander CPR to a victim of cardiac arrest. The 2015 International Consensus on CPR Science is a valuable resource for CPR researchers as well as clinicians.
