  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) consists of the use of chest compressions and artificial ventilation to maintain circulatory flow and oxygenation during cardiac arrest (see the images below). Although survival rates and neurologic outcomes are poor for patients with cardiac arrest, early appropriate resuscitation—involving early defibrillation—and appropriate implementation of post–cardiac arrest care lead to improved survival and neurologic outcomes.

  • Hong Kong St. John Ambulance
    In Hong Kong, the St. John Ambulance Association was established in 1884, followed by the Ambulance Brigade in 1916 and the Council in 1949. Adhered to its motto, "For the Service of Mankind", the organisation is dedicated to provide First Aid and ambulance services in emergency, dental care for the elderly and patients with special needs, and courses of instructions on First Aid and Home Nursing for the general public.
  • Hong Kong Red Cross
    The Hong Kong Red Cross ("HKRC") was established in 1950 as a branch of the British Red Cross Society. Since 1 July 1997, upon the return of Hong Kong's sovereignty to China, the HKRC has changed its affiliation to become a highly autonomous branch of the Red Cross Society of China.
  • cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR):CPR and ALS course
    The RACGP recognises that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills are used infrequently, and thus may diminish. Evidence suggests the most important determinant of survival from sudden cardiac arrest is the presence of a trained rescuer who is ready, willing, able and equipped to act. The CPR and ALS course content requirements for registrars are quite specific. For details on the types of courses that meet the ALS and CPR requirements for registrars see the Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Advanced Life Support Courses Guidance Document
  • Healthcare Professional - CPR - American Heart Association
    Providers enhance their skills in treating adult victims of cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergencies, while earning their American Heart Association ACLS (AHA ACLS) for Healthcare Providers Course Completion Card.
  • Resuscitation Council of Hong Kong (RCHK)
    The Resuscitation Council of Hong Kong (RCHK) has been established since 26 May 2012, aiming at “bringing in together local institutions that are involved in various aspects of resuscitation”. Other than engaging in local context, RCHK is also an associated member affiliated with the RESUSCITATION COUNCIL OF ASIA (RCA). RCA is a member of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), which was formed in 1992 to provide a forum for liaison amongst principal resuscitation organizations worldwide.

    NEW Web-Based Integrated Guidelines This site blends the 2015 and 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC into a new online interface. Explore and search all guidelines from your desktop or mobile device.
  • 2015-2020 ACLS Guideline Changes Update
    In October 2015 the American Heart Association released their new 2015 guidelines for BLS and ACLS. These guidelines will be good through 2020. There were some minor changes to both the BLS and ACLS Guidelines. The links below review changes that occurred with the release of the 2015 ACLS & BLS Guidelines. The article content was developed from information released by the American Heart Association in their Executive Summary: 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care and cited references from the executive summary.

  • Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) in adults
    Because of the nature of resuscitation research, few randomized controlled trials have been completed in humans. Many of the recommendations in the American Heart Association's 2010 Guidelines for advanced cardiac life support and the 2015 update (hereafter referred to as the ACLS Guidelines) are made based upon retrospective studies, animal studies, and expert consensus [5,7]. Guideline recommendations are classified according to the GRADE system [9].
  • Algorithms for Basic Life Support 2016 (Sep 22, 2016)
    A critical part of Basic Life Support training is understanding and properly adhering to the BLS algorithms. These present the basic course of action that a rescuer should perform for life support. We provide this information for free to our visitors and each page is a separate algorithm which is linked below. See our website terms.
  • Resuscitation guidelines
    The guidelines contain detailed information about basic and advanced life support for adults, paediatrics and the newborn. Also included are guidelines for the use of Automated External Defibrillators and other related topics. The Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines have been adapted from the 2015 ERC Guidelines and are tailored specifically to clinical practice in the UK.
  • Adult Basic Life Support and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Quality
    This 2015 Guidelines Update is based on the systematic reviews and recommendations of the 2015 International Consensus on CPR and ECC Science With Treatment Recommendations, “Part 3: Adult Basic Life Support and Automated External Defibrillation.”1,2 In the online version of this document, live links are provided so the reader can connect directly to the systematic reviews on the ILCOR Scientific Evidence Evaluation and Review System (SEERS) website.
