Advanced Cardiac Life Support (CPR) (2021)

Management of cardiac arrest is a critical skill for all health professionals. Regular updates are essential for maintaining the knowledge and practical skills required for CPR. In the following modules we draw upon the most recent Australian Resuscitation Council recommendations to review the approach to the patient with suspected cardiac arrest. For each topic an eTutorial is used to introduce the topic and provides a useful background to work through the clinical case scenario.
