Code blue: What's new?

John S Rose, Kristi L. Koenig

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In October 1992, lengthy new guidelines for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and emergency cardiac care were published by the Emergency Cardiac Care Committee and Subcommittees of the American Heart Association. These guidelines represent the efforts of the world's experts in emergency cardiac care. Yet they may be difficult for the busy clinician to digest in a timely fashion. In this article we summarize the changes in the guidelines from the 1986 version. It is not intended as a substitute for the original document but rather as an adjunct to help the clinician assimilate this new information.
