Abstract

Abstract: The American Heart Association Guidelines Update for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care focuses on the resuscitation science and guidelines recommendations for resuscitation providers. This update was published in October 2015 and includes updated resuscitation strategies such as the removal of vasopressin from the Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm and a change in the ventilation rate for a patient with an advanced airway during CPR.
