A national framework on cardiac arrest
We know that survival rates following an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) could be improved, but to achieve this requires attention to all aspects of the pathway of care for these patients.
Supported by two of NHS England’s National Clinical Directors, this new guidance, Resuscitation to Recovery, provides a professional consensus of what an optimum pathway might look like and how this could be more consistently applied in England. It builds on published guidance and research evidence where these are available, and otherwise brings together experts to provide consensus recommendations. The British Heart Foundation is proud to have supported the development of this document.
