E-BOOK DESCRIPTION

The birth of modern emergency first aid for cardiac arrest can be dated to the recognition that the newly described effective artificial ventilation together with chest compressions were ‘parts of a whole and complete approach to resuscitation’. This occurred at a celebrated meeting of the pioneers of these techniques in 1960. By then, external defibrillators were also available. All that was needed was widespread dissemination of the necessary skills to permit the successful treatment of cardiac arrest to become an everyday reality. An international meeting to that end was held during the following year in Stavanger. At that time, chest compression was to be practised only by ‘medical personnel, nurses, and recognised life savers’. Progress thereafter was inevitably slow. Guidelines for public use were first published in the USA in 1974, whilst in the UK a stimulus for healthcare professionals was provided by a series of articles published in the British Medical Journal during 1986 under the banner of ‘The ABC of Resuscitation’. These were put together for the first edition of the booklet under that very apt name published at the end of the same year. The appearance now of a sixth edition attests its importance.
