Abstract: A review article updating previous such articles, including information regarding management of cardiorespiratory arrest. The article also included self-assessment questions.The Resuscitation Council (UK) has published quality standards for practice and training, based on its 2015 guidelines. These guidelines align with similar international initiatives, taking account of new evidence from clinical trials of cardiac arrest management. In an effort to improve long-term survival after cardiac arrest in the community, national strategies confirm the importance of the ‘chain of survival’ concept that summarizes important components of successful resuscitation. They also promote the establishment of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest centres – hospitals that can provide optimal post-resuscitation interventions to patients showing a return of spontaneous circulation.
