European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021: Adult advanc
Clinical practice guidelines on adult advanced life support (ALS) were published in April 2021 by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) in Resuscitation.

The ERC guidelines on ALS in adults focus on the prevention and treatment of both in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Adult advanced life support (ALS) includes the advanced interventions that follow basic life support (BLS) and the use of an automated external de?brillator (AED). Basic life support continues during and overlaps with ALS interventions. Key points to remember from the guidelines are provided in the posters attached.
