Resuscitation Guidelines 2015 at the ERC Congress, Prague, Czech Republic.

The European Resuscitation Council launched the 2015 Resuscitation Guidelines in Prague. With over 3000 attendees this was one of the best attended ERC meetings ever!

O-Two was represented at the exhibition by Anita Bekavac and Kevin Bowden and the level of interest in O-Two products by the delegates (especially SMART BAG and the e700 ventilator) was phenomenal! The visitors to our booth came from 27 countries as far apart as Chile and Russia and Sweden and South Korea making this a truly international conference.

While the 2015 Booth at ERCGuidelines did not introduce any new protocols they did solidify a number of issues and brought up some science that perhaps downgraded the benefit of certain CPR adjuncts. Of particular note was the reference to Supraglottic airways and their clinical inferiority to standard bag-valve-mask ventilation. In addition the use of automated chest compression devices was downplayed as not showing any clinical benefit over manual chest compressions.

With the guidelines now firmly set for the next 5 years we look forward to seeing an overall improvement in survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest.
