Post-Cardiac Arrest Care
The new fifth link in the chain of survival
2010 AHA guidelines added a fifth link in the chain of survival. These remain in effect for the 2015-2020 guidelines. The 5th link is integrated post-cardiac arrest care.
During ACLS certification, you will be tested on Post-Cardiac Arrest Care in both the ACLS written exam and during the megacode. Areas of knowledge will include post-arrest medications, ventilation, and oxygenation, induced hypothermia, fluid resuscitation and treatment of reversible causes.
