Evolution in Resuscitation
Understanding the EMS Implications of the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPREvolution in Resuscitation is a supplement sponsored by the American Heart Association, Laerdal, Michigan Instruments, Philips, Physio-Control, Vidacare and ZOLL and is published by Elsevier Public Safety. Editor's Note: This cover photo exhibits a patient who went into cardiac arrest while being monitored. It illustrates care compliant with the 2005 Guidelines. The 2010 Guidelines recommend significant changes in prehospital cardiac care with regard to compressions, ventilation, intubation and confirmation of a patient airway. Go to CPRGuidelines on JEMSConnect to discuss with other EMS professionals what should be different about this photo to be in compliance with the 2010 Guidelines, and what you envision crews might be doing different five years from now in their assessment and care of patients.

Heightman notest that the new AHA CPR Guidelines seem simple in several areas, but they’ll require EMS to carefully retrain crews, adopt a new thought process and systems approach to cardiac arrest management, and develop a more integrated citizen, police, fire, EMS and hospital interface.
