An in-depth review by leading authorities of the latest therapies and techniques for rescuing persons in cardiac arrest. The authors explore the physiology behind current state-of-the-art clinical resuscitation 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.
