Abstract

Background: Post-cardiac arrest care is critically important in bringing cardiac arrest patients to functional recovery after the detrimental event. More high quality studies are published and evidence is accumulated for the post-cardiac arrest care in the recent years. It is still a challenge for the clinicians to integrate these scientific data into the real clinical practice for such a complicated intensive care involving many different disciplines. Methods: With the cooperation of the experienced experts from all disciplines relevant to post-cardiac arrest care, the consensus of the scientific statement was generated and supported by three major scientific groups for emergency and critical care in post-cardiac arrest care. Results: High quality post-cardiac arrest care, including targeted temperature management, early evaluation of possible acute coronary event and intensive care for hemodynamic and respiratory care are inevitably needed to get full recovery for cardiac arrest. Management of these critical issues were reviewed and proposed in the consensus Conclusion: The goal of the statement is to provide help for the clinical physician to achieve better quality and evidence-based care in post-cardiac arrest period.
