The ERC is starting to prepare for the publication of Guidelines 2020 which will be released at the ERC conference in Manchester in October 2020. The guidelines will draw on the continuous evidence evaluation process and annual reviews published by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation supplemented by updated reviews of the literature where necessary. This will ensure the latest evidence is available for resuscitation practitioners and members of the public throughout Europe. This will serve to maximise the chances of survival from cardiac arrest.
Adopting a refreshed style and approach, the ERC guidelines will summarise key treatment algorithms before expanding to explain about the science that informs the resuscitation guidelines. The guidelines will identify high priority interventions which provide the greatest opportunities for impact.
The Guideline development process will follow the standards set out by the Guideline International Network. The ERC intends to have greater community involvement in the development of Guidelines 2020. This will start with soliciting views from our community on the scope of the guidelines so watch this space for further details!
