ECC/ILCOR 2015 CPR Guideline changes:
Through February 28: AHA & ILCOR Seeking Public Comment on Scientific Evidence Evaluation Questions
It's been an exciting few days in Dallas at the AHA-hosted Consensus on Science Conference (C2015), where we've seen many productive conversations about systematic evidence evaluations for CPR and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC).
We’re excited to see the public comments coming in from many of you online. As a stakeholder in resuscitation care, the AHA encourages you and your peers and/or customers to visit to join in or continue the conversation!
As a reminder, the AHA and ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) are seeking public comment about scientific evidence evaluation questions that will be used to develop the 2015 guidelines for CPR and ECC. ILCOR is using an online public commenting process with the objective of providing transparent and rigorous treatment recommendations based on high-quality systematic evidence reviews.
The public commenting process will continue through February 28th. All of the clinical and education questions and draft recommendations on a variety of resuscitation topics are now posted for review on ILCOR's Scientific Evidence Evaluation and Review System athttp://ILCOR.org/SEERS.
Each question posted focuses on a specific resuscitation topic and includes scientific evidence from relevant, peer-reviewed journals. These questions are addressed by one of ILCOR's 7 task forces:
Advanced Life Support Task Force
Basic Life Support Task Force
Pediatric Resuscitation Task Force
Neonatal Resuscitation Task Force
Education, Implementation and Teams Task Force
Acute Coronary Syndrome Task Force
First Aid Task Force
ILCOR's Consensus on Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) is scheduled for online publication in the journal Circulation on October 15, 2015. Based in part on CoSTR, the 2015 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC will also be published on the same date.
Thank you for your participation in this invaluable process.
Eliminating Mouth-to-Mouth Boosts CPR Results: Study
"Followed by use of easy-to-use publicly available defibrillators, chest compression alone kept more people alive with good brain function than traditional CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) with mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing, the study found."

"My husband, daughter and I felt the class was very thorough, complete, and interesting. All of our questions were answered, and we felt comfortable asking what we felt might be the silliest or most mundane questions. Both instructors were very knowledgeable in their field. This is the first time I have ever learned how to put on and take off gloves without contaminating anything or my own skin! We will be back in two years for the renewal!"
