About this book

Despite more than 50 years of medical progress since the introduction of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), only 1 out of 5 adults survive in-hospital cardiac arrest, and fewer than 1 in 10 survive out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. In Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, leading clinicians and scientists-many responsible for the latest international guidelines in resuscitation-comprehensively review the latest therapies and techniques for rescuing persons in cardiac arrest. The authors explore the physiology behind current state-of-the-art clinical resuscitation in depth and translate it into practical bedside recommendations, clinical tips, and expert techniques. Topics of interest include the epidemiology of sudden death; management of ventilation; chest compression technique training; public access defibrillation; drug delivery during CPR; the latest drug therapies; and cardiac arrest in disease, pregnancy, drowning, lightning strike, and trauma. The authors also review the major ongoing research in resuscitation science that will likely affect the next set of international resuscitation guidelines. The design of clinical trials and the ethical issues surrounding resuscitation of both children and adults are discussed extensively.
Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is designed to enhance the ability of resuscitation teams to perform their duties successfully, and save even more lives.
