Consensus statements on out of hospital cardiac arrest recommendations

Situational awareness in patients with OHCA

In all comatose OHCA patients, we recommend dynamic clinical decision-making of “definite” or “defer” transport to CCL based on situational awareness and assessment involving all clinical factors along the entire continuum of care.

OHCA patients with non-shockable rhythms

In OHCA patients with initial non-shockable rhythm, we recommended deferring transport to CCL at initial encounter.
