The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) was formed in 1993 and currently includes representatives from the American Heart Association (AHA), the European Resuscitation Council, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation, the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa, the InterAmerican Heart Foundation, and the Resuscitation Council of Asia. The ILCOR mission is to identify and review international science and information relevant to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC) and to offer consensus on treatment recommendations. Emergency cardiovascular care includes all responses necessary to treat sudden life-threatening events affecting the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, with a particular focus on sudden cardiac arrest. Since 2000, researchers from ILCOR have evaluated and reported their International Consensus on CPR and ECC Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) in 5-year cycles. The conclusions and recommendations of the 2010 CoSTR were published at the end of 2010. Since that time, ILCOR meetings and webinars have continued to identify and evaluate resuscitation science. The most recent ILCOR 2015 International Consensus Conference on CPR and ECC Science with Treatment Recommendations was held in Dallas in February 2015, and from this meeting the consensus science statements and treatment recommendations were developed with input from the ILCOR task forces, the invited participants, and public comment. From here the consensus statements on the science of resuscitation and first aid are developed and published simultaneously in Circulation and Resuscitation. Individual organizations will now draft specific guidelines in order streamline and reduce the amount of information that prehospital providers (ie., community and professional) need to acquire and perform in an emergency situation to improve prehospital patient outcomes. This presentation is designed to provide an overview of the salient scientific evidence necessary for the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of the current best evidence in making prehospital resuscitation and first aid care decisions for effective prehospital care of injured and ill patients under the direction of an athletic trainer.
1. Locate the 2015 ECC, CPR, and First Aid scientific evidence and treatment recommendations.
2. Identify and discuss the scientific evidence and rationale behind the updated emergency cardiac care and first recommendations and guidelines.
3. Discuss and explain how the 2015 ECC, CPR, and First Aid scientific evidence and treatment recommendations may affect patient care.
4. Identify and implement strategies to incorporate the new 2015 ECC, CPR, and First Aid scientific evidence and treatment recommendations into clinical practice to improve patient outcomes.
5. Demonstrate selected psychomotor skills from the 2015 emergency cardiac care and first aid recommendations and guidelines.
6. Implement pedagogical strategies to improve student learning relative to the new the ECC, CPR, and First Aid scientific evidence and treatment recommendations.
