in Cardiac Arrest
The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary
co-ordinating body which represents all major groups involved in
the teaching and practice of resuscitation.
The Australian Resuscitation Council is
sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the
Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.
The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet
its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in
resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are
produced after consideration of all available scientific and
published material and are only issued after acceptance by all
member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods
other then those recommended are ineffective.
It is the policy of the Australian Resuscitation Council to
respect the autonomy of member organisations.
