Draft 2015 Guidelines Now Available

Draft ANZCOR 2015 Guidelines are available for review on the ARC website at:

The revised Guidelines are based on the Consensus on Science and Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).

In the BLS guidelines, there is a change to the recommended rate of compressions from ‘approximately 100’ to a range of ‘100 to 120 compressions per minute’. ANZCOR recommendations on depth of compressions and other factors remain unchanged.

The deadline for comment on the proposed guidelines is Monday 7 December 2015.
