Download the ERC Guidelines

The European Resuscitation Council Guidelines for Resuscitation 2005 provide specific instructions for how resuscitation should be practiced and take into account ease of teaching and learning, as well as the science. They were developed by Europeans and have been specifically written with European practice in mind.

Translated guidelines are available here.

Download the 2005 CoSTR Documents

The 2005 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) summarises the scientific evidence supporting all aspects of resuscitation and assigns a level to each of the studies referenced.

Where consensus could be achieved, treatment recommendations were made, but when the evidence was conflicting these were often relatively non-specific.
