2015 AHA Guidelines Updates Implemented in EMS ReferenceBy Jennifer Berry

December 2, 2015

The American Heart Association released its 2015 Guidelines Update for CPR & ECC in October. The update is largely based on the topics addressed by the 2015 ILCOR evidence review, which means many clinical topics remain unchanged from 2010 and some changes are merely clarifications of existing guidelines.

The EMS Reference strives to be clinically relevant at all times; therefore, we have updated the Cardiac Arrest Management for ALS Providers and Cardiac Arrest Management Top 10 articles to reflect current AHA Guidelines. EMS students are encouraged to look to the National Registry of EMTs website to determine which guidelines will be used during the cognitive and psychomotor exam.
