- AHA ACLS manual pg. 11 & 59. CPR and defibrillation support the primary goal of BLS and ACLS which is to: “support and restore effective oxygenation, ventilation, and circulation with return of intact neurologic function.”
- AHA ACLS Manual pg. 60. Under the subheading: Overview it states: “The Cardiac Arrest Algorithm is the most important algorithm to know for adult resuscitation.”
- AHA ACLS Manual pg. 11. A systemic approach using the BLS and ACLS Survey ensures proper treatment/intervention for ROSC (return of spontaneous circulation).
- AHA ACLS Manual pg. 13 The BLS survey shown in a table on pg. 13 lists the 4 steps of the BLS Survey: 1. Check responsiveness; 2. Activate the emergency response system/get AED; 3. Circulation; and 4. Defibrillation. Note that opening the airway is not included in the BLS Survey.
- AHA ACLS Manual pg. 12. For BLS, emphasis has been placed on minimizing delays in chest compressions.
- AHA ACLS manual pg. 13. Step #4 in the BLS Survey states: “*Follow each shock immediately with CPR, beginning with compressions.”
- AHA ACLS manual pg. 63. “A cycle consists of 30 compressions followed by 2 ventilations in the patient without an advanced airway.”
- AHA ACLS manual pg. 48. “…Once an advanced airway is in place, chest compressions are no longer interrupted for ventilations…When ventilating through a properly placed advanced airway, give 1 breath every 6 to 8 seconds.”
- AHA ACLS manual pg. 54. The earlier the defibrillation occurs, the higher the survival rate.
- AHA ACLS manual pg. 46. “Suctions attempts should not exceed 10 seconds.”
