Abstract

DALRI, Maria Celia Barcellos et al. New guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.6, pp. 1060-1062. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692008000600020.

Cardiopulmonary arrest (CPA) poses a severe threat to life; cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) represents a challenge for research and assessment by nurses and their team. This study presents the most recent international recommendations for care in case of cardiopulmonary heart arrest, based on the 2005 Guidelines by the American Heart Association (AHA). These CPR guidelines are based on a large-scale review process, organized by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). High-quality basic and advanced CPR maneuvers can save lives.

Keywords : nursing; heart arrest; cardiopulmonary resuscitation; emergency nursing.
