Early Attempts at Resuscitation Elisha's mouth to mouth resuscitation (Bible, 2 Kings, IV, 34): "...And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands; and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm."

Scientific and Programmatic Highlights of the Modern History of CPR 1740 The Paris Academy of Sciences officially recommends mouth-to-mouth resuscitation for drowning victims The Society for the Recovery of Drowned Persons becomes the first organized effort to deal with sudden death Dr. Friedrich Maass performs the first documented chest compression in humans Dr. George Crile reports the first successful use of external chest compressions in human resuscitation James Elam is the first to prove that expired air is sufficient to maintain adequate oxygenation Peter Safar and James Elam invent mouth-to-mouth resuscitation The United States military adopts the mouth-to-mouth resuscitation method to revive unresponsive victims CPR is developed. The AHA starts a program to acquaint physicians with close-chest cardiac resuscitation Cardiologist Leonard Scherlis starts the AHA's CPR Committee, and the same year, the AHA formally endorses CPR Standardized training and performance standards for CPR are established Leonard Cobb holds the world's first mass citizen training in CPR in Seattle, Washington called Medic A program to provide telephone instructions in CPR begins in King County, Washington A program with fire fighter EMTs using AEDs begins in King County, Washington 1991 The chain of survival is introduced in 1991 as a model of efficiency and synergy in resuscitation efforts The world’s first international conference is assembled specifically to produce international resuscitation guidelines ILCOR publishes the 2005 International Consensus on CPR and ECC Science with Treatment Recommendations The International Consensus on CPR and ECC Science with Treatment Recommendations is planned for publication in October.
Adult Chain of Survival American Heart Association The chain of survival was first introduced in 1991 as a model of efficiency and synergy in resuscitation efforts European Resuscitation Council
I. The 3-phase model in VT/VF arrest integrating and characterizing specifically the time relationships of the value of rapid defibrillation, CPR performance, and the need for other measures. PhaseTimeIntervention I. Electrical0-5 minDefibrillation II. Circulatory5-15 minChest Compressions III. Metabolic>15 minHypothermia Weisfeldt and Becker. JAMA 2002.
II. The introduction of inexpensive, easy-to- use Automatic External Defibrillators. Zafari, et al. J Am Coll Cardiol In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Weaver et al. N Engl J Med 2002.
III. The need to translate animal data on CPR performance and effectiveness from the laboratory data into the clinical arena. Sanders, et al. J Am Coll Cardiol 1985.Kern, et al. Resuscitation 1998.
IV. Introduction of devices that may improve perfusion during cardiopulmonary resuscitation and thus may improve survival. Halperin, et al. J Am Coll Cardiol Halperin, et al. N Engl J Med 1993
V. Cardiocerebral resuscitation is useful in patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Kern, et al. Circulation Ewy. Circulation “Why is it that every time I press on his chest he opens his eyes, and every time I stop to breathe for him he goes back to sleep?” A lay rescuer who had been given dispatch telephone instructions in CPR Ewy, et al. J Am Coll Cardiol 2009.
VI. Registry-based information on in-hospital and out-of-hospital CPR: The National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Chan, et al. N Engl J Med Bloom, et al. Am Heart J 2007.
VII. Change in the characteristics of the population suffering cardiac arrest: Zheng, et al. Circulation 2001.
VIII. New paradigms that may affect resuscitation. Lloyd, et al. Circulation 2008.
IX. The Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome and new technologies that may impact on resuscitation. Neumar, et al. Circulation Neumar, et al. Resuscitation 2004.
X. Moderate Hypothermia in patients who after out-of- hospital cardiac arrest have not awakened when they reach the emergency department. The Hypothermia after Cardiac Arrest Study Group. N Engl J Med 2002.
XI. The state of consciousness during cardiac arrest. The AWAreness during Resuscitation Experiment (AWARE) is an ongoing study run by the Human Consciousness Project. Flatliners, 1990 with Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland.
Abella et al. JAMA XII. Quality of CPR Performance
Summary and Conclusions Advances in resuscitative medicine are founded on the basic science understanding of physiology and pathophysiology as well as advances in understanding of the causal mechanisms involved in successful or unsuccessful resuscitation. Survival is correlated with the speed and quality with which definitive therapies such as chest compressions and defibrillation are begun after cardiac arrest. Push hard, push fast, minimize interruptions. Automated detection algorithms and technological advances in early defibrillation, chest compression, and post cardiac arrest care have the potential to increase survival to discharge in patients with out-of-hospital and in-hospital cardiac arrest.
