Abstract

Clinicians, as well as lay people, have realized the importance of resuscitative maneuvers throughout recorded history. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation has evolved from a relatively primitive technique to one now dictated by data from evidence based medicine. Recent advancements include changes in life support guidelines, the development of an impedance threshold device, and the initiation of therapeutic hypothermia. We can only expect continued advancements in cardiopulmonary resuscitation through new technology with resultant improved outcomes.
