2018 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science With Treatment Recommendations Summary

Emergency-medical-service_750x500
  • More than 350,000 EMS-assessed cardiac arrests and 209,000 in-hospital cardiac arrests occur annually in the US.  Despite advances in resuscitation science, survival rates are only at best 11%.
  • This statement addresses the use of antiarrhythmic drugs immediately following return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after cardiac arrest in adults and children.
  • The statement provides clinical insights, identifies knowledge gaps, and encourages future research in this area.
