Abstract

It is five years now since the last European resuscitation guidelines were published(1). The science of resuscitation has been enriched with further significant scientific evidence that has led to new evidence-based guidelines. These guidelines were released in November 2005 and published in the international Journal of Resuscitation, November 2005(2).
