2021 ERC-ESICM Guidelines on Post-Resuscitation Care
The European Resuscitation Council (ERC) and ESICM have collaborated to produce updated post-resuscitation care guidelines for adults, which are based on the 2020 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Science with Treatment Recommendations.
Organised by the ESICM Trauma and Emergency Medicine (TEM) section, this free webinar provided an executive summary of the guidelines, focusing on coronary reperfusion after cardiac arrest, optimising cerebral oxygenation and perfusion and prognostication.
