Epinephrine has been the cornerstone of cardiac resuscitation and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) from the birth of modern cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the early 1960s.[sup] The provision of epinephrine is currently suggested by both the American Heart Association (AHA) and the European Resuscitation Council in both shockable and nonshockable rhythms.[sup] Epinephrine is vital to improving the return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC).
The cardiopulmonary emergency workshop was designed as part of a simulation-based skills series to prepare medical students for a required end-year Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification course.
New guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC) set upper limits on chest compression rate and depth, add naloxone to the care of suspected opioid abusers, and remove vasopressin from the advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) algorithm.
