The science and recommendations discussed in the other Parts of the 2015 American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines Update for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) form the backbone of resuscitation. They answer the “why”, “what,” and “when” of performing resuscitation steps. In a perfectly controlled and predictable environment, such as a laboratory setting, those answers often suffice, but the “how” of actual implementation depends on knowing the “who…

2019 American Heart Association Focused Update on Systems of Care: Dispatcher-Assisted Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Cardiac Arrest Centers: An Update to the American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
TLDR
The revised recommendations that emergency dispatch centers should offer and instruct bystanders in cardiopulmonary resuscitation during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest and that a regionalized approach to post-cardiac arrest care may be reasonable when comprehensive postarrest care is not available at local facilities are included.
Part 7: Systems of Care: 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
TLDR
Recommendations about community initiatives to promote cardiac arrest recognition, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, public access defibrillation, mobile phone technologies to summon first responders, and an enhanced role for emergency telecommunicators are included.
Building a Culture of Champions: The Importance of Leadership in Resuscitation
TLDR
The 2020 updated adult IHCA Chain of Survival currently includes 6 key components, early recognition and prevention, activation of emergency response, highquality cardiopulmonary resuscitation, defibrillation, post– cardiac arrest care, and recovery, that illustrate the complex coordination required of a resuscitation effort.
Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation Systems of Care: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association
TLDR
This update describes recent advances in the science of cardiac resuscitation systems and evidence of their effectiveness, as well as recent progress in dissemination and implementation throughout the United States.
Performance of the Rapid Response Systems in Health Care Improvement: Benefits and Perspectives
TLDR
The main function is to identify and treat patients at risk, or who are presenting signs of clinical instability, and to prevent adverse events during hospital stay, with a consequent reduction in in-hospital mortality.
Impact of Change in 2010 American Heart Association Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Guidelines on Survival After Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest in the United States
TLDR
The change in 2010 American Heart Association cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidelines was associated with only slight improvement in ED survival and survival-to-discharge trends among US OHCA patients and only 1 in 6OHCA patients survival to discharge.
Contemporary evidence-based practice in Canadian emergency medical services: a vision for integrating evidence into clinical and policy decision-making.
TLDR
This work proposes a vision for EBP in EMS that Canadian EMS clinicians and leaders will understand and use the best available evidence for clinical and administrative decision-making, to improve patient health outcomes, the capability and quality of EMS systems of care, and safety of patients and EMS professionals.
Effect of national implementation of utstein recommendation from the global resuscitation alliance on ten steps to improve outcomes from Out-of-Hospital cardiac arrest: a ten-year observational study in Korea
TLDR
The national implementation of the five UTIS programs was significantly associated with better OHCA outcomes in Korea.
Cardiac arrest in the paediatric intensive care unit: defining the problem and developing solutions
TLDR
A novel and standardised process to track and analyse cardiac arrests in the Duke paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) to establish a multidisciplinary comprehensive cardiac arrest review process and promote quality improvement initiatives and improved consistent delivery of high-quality CPR.
Delphi Analysis of Science Gaps in the 2015 American Heart Association Cardiac Arrest Guidelines
TLDR
Ten priorities for cardiac arrest research were identified, but consensus was not reached on the prioritized top 3, and future research should address these gaps to potentially improve resuscitation guideline evidence quality.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Quality: Improving Cardiac Resuscitation Outcomes Both Inside and Outside the Hospital A Consensus Statement From the American Heart Association
TLDR
This consensus statement addresses the following key areas of CPR quality for the trained rescuer: metrics of CPR performance; monitoring, feedback, and integration of the patient's response to CPR; team-level logistics to ensure performance of high-quality CPR; and continuous quality improvement on provider, team, and systems levels.
Part 13: pediatric basic life support: 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.
For best survival and quality of life, pediatric basic life support (BLS) should be part of a community effort that includes prevention, early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), prompt access to
Take Heart America: A comprehensive, community-wide, systems-based approach to the treatment of cardiac arrest*
TLDR
The Take Heart America program doubled cardiac arrest survival when compared with historical controls, and a financial analysis revealed that the cardiac arrest centers concept was financially feasible, despite the costs associated with high-quality postresuscitation care.
Hands-only (compression-only) cardiopulmonary resuscitation: a call to action for bystander response to adults who experience out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest: a science advisory for the public from the American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee.
TLDR
This science advisory is published to amend and clarify the “2005 American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC)” for bystanders who witness an adult out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
Implementing and Sustaining Evidence-Based Nursing Practice to Reduce Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Arrest
TLDR
The process and outcomes of implementing and sustaining the use of PEWS at the unit and organizational level using the Plan—Do—Check—Act methodology for performance improvement are described and strategies to sustain the positive outcomes are described.
Findings of the First Consensus Conference on Medical Emergency Teams*
TLDR
Hospitals should implement an RRS, which consists of four elements: an afferent, “crisis detection” and “response triggering” mechanism; an efferent, predetermined rapid response team; a governance/administrative structure to supply and organize resources; and a mechanism to evaluate crisis antecedents and promote hospital process improvement to prevent future events.
