Abstract

This article focuses on important advances in the science of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the last decade that have led to a significant improvement in understanding the complex physiology of cardiac arrest and critical interventions for the initial management of cardiac arrest and postresuscitation treatment. Special emphasis is given to the basic simple ways to improve circulation, vital organ perfusion pressures, and the grave prognosis of sudden cardiac death.
