Sarin H, Kapoor D

Abstract

Prompt and skilful resuscitation during cardiac arrest can make a significant difference between life and death. There have been important advances in the science of resuscitation and various international resuscitation committees have formulated evidence-based recommendations for the performance of basic life support. The revised guidelines published in the year 2005 have been designed to simplify cardiopulmonary resuscitation. In this article, we have summarized basic life support guidelines for adult victims.
