New Guidelines October 2015

12/02/2015 21:07

The Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) CPR and First Aid Guidelines 2015 will be published in October 2015. The evidence behind these guidelines comes from an international process coordinated by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) of which the HSF is a founding member and the only Canadian representative.


ILCOR has provided an opportunity for an online public commenting process with the objective of providing transparent and rigorous treatment recommendations.ILCOR's seven task forces are finalizing their reviews of the most recent resuscitation literature from around the world to gather consensus on the science and recommendations. To comment on these reviews, please go to


As a stakeholder in resuscitation care, HSF encourages you or your organization to participate in the ILCOR review process. Further reviews will be added over the next month.


Please note, the reviews are only available in English language.


Thank you for your dedication and commitment to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Together we are creating more survivors.
