    Guideline - TOC

    Significant changes over 2010 gúidelines enumerated here.
    1. significance of high quality chest compressions reemphasized and targets for compression rate and depth have been refined. For adults Rate -100 to 120 .( not more than 120). Depth 5 to 6 cm. Not more than 6 cm.
    2. Recognition of abnormal breathing and agnostic breathing as cardiac arrest by bystanders. Early AED use.
    3. Focus on self adhesive defibrillator pads.
    4. Allow full chest recoil. Minimize chest compressions. Less than 10 seconds for ventilation and less than 5 second for defibrillation.
    5. Avoid excessive ventilation.
    6. Atleast 60% target compression fraction .

    7. Advanced airway than no stopping off compression for ventilation. Rate 10 per minute.
    8. Mechanical chest compression devices reasonable alternative where manual compressions not feasible or hazardous.
    9. Continuous ETCO2 waveform to guide tube placement and quality of CPR. Maxi in fi02 during CPR.
    10. USG and Echo to diagnose reversible caused without interrupting chest compressions.
    11. ECPR or venoarterial ECMO for refractory cardiac arrest in reversible causes.
    12. Post cardiac arrest all comatose adult patients with ROSC after cardiac arrest should have targeted temperature control between 32 and 36 degree Celsius.
    In IHCA, vasopressin, epinephrine and methylprednisolone and post circulation hydrocortisone may be given as described in Metzelopolen trial.
