The 2005 AHA guidelines represent a major shift in recommended methods of resuscitation, including a heavy focus on minimally interrupted compressions, control of ventilatory rates and utilization of induced hypothermia for post-resuscitation care. This webcast will present the science supporting the 2005 guidelines and describe the approach to translational medicine in the Wake County (N.C.) EMS System, lessons learned and the new scientific questions that have been raised.
