The 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR & Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC)

Every five years, hundreds of leading resuscitation experts from around the world review all new and existing research as part of an international consensus process. This is the basis for any revisions to the AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC.

The AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC provide science-based recommendations for treating cardiovascular emergencies, particularly sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in adults, children, infants and newborns.

The AHA has long been a leader in resuscitation science – in fact, we have been publishing guidelines for CPR and emergency care for more than 40 years. Our guidelines are based on the latest science and are the basis for CPR training for organizations around the world.

The American Heart Association is making CPR even easier so more people will do CPR and more lives can be saved. It’s never been easier to help save a life.

This interactive webinar will tell you what you should know about the new guidelines for CPR & ECC.
