Alternative Title
The Resuscitation Council (UK) (2015) Guidelines for basic and advanced life support for adults, children and the newborn were updated in October. Using a process of scientific review accredited by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, these reflect the recommendations of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation and replace the 2010 guidelines. Patient survival to hospital discharge for in-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK is currently 18% (Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre, 2015). Given that National Cardiac Arrest Audit data demonstrate that several hospitals have survival rates twice this level, doing things better is the key message. The changes are otherwise subtle.
