New guidelines for resuscitation have been launched today by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). These represent collaborative work between the resuscitation councils of different regions, including Europe and America.
The content of these guidelines has been kept under wraps for several months, however an important message being sent out is that the new guidance will be phased in according to local resources… therefore hesitation to implement CPR because of confusion between guidelines is to be avoided.
The new guidelines are available from today at the ILCOR website. The UK Resuscitation Council has also updated its website.
