Abstract

The American Heart Association, together with representatives from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), which is made up of leading resuscitation organizations from the Americas, Europe, Southern Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, undertook a series of evidence-based evaluations of the science of resuscitation which culminated in the publication of ’Guidelines 2000 for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care’ in August 2000 tL2). Experts from non-ILCOR organizations from Asia and elsewhere also participated in drawing up the guidelines.
