Abstract

The International Guidelines 2000 Conference on Cardiop-ulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care was the world's first international conference to produce evi-dence-based international resuscitation guidelines.

Herein, we summarize the changes in these guidelines as it applies to Adult Basic Life Support (BLS). This interpretation is basically similar to that of the European Resuscitation Coun-cil (ERC). The changes have been incorporated into the cur-riculum of our Advanced Life Support (ALS) provider courses and the new 2001 ERC ALS manual.
