The AHA recommends continuous waveform capnography in addition to clinical assessment as the most reliable method of confirming and monitoring correct placement of endotracheal tube

In adult victims of cardiac arrest it is reasonable for rescuers to perform chest compression at a rate of 100 to 120/min

During manual CPR rescuers should perform chest compressions to a depth of at least 2 inches for an average adult, while avoiding excessive chest compression depths.

It may be reasonable for the provider to deliver 1 breath every 6 seconds while continuous chest compression are performing.

The evidence does not demonstrate a benefit with the use of mechanical piston devices for chest compression versus  manual chest compression.

ECPR may be considered an alternative to conventional CPR for selected patient who have a cardiac arrest.

Vasopressin in combination with epinephrine offers no advantage as a substitute for standard dose of epinephrine in cardiac arrest

Coronary angiography should be performed emergently for OHCA patients with suspected cardiac etiology of cardiac arrest and ST elevation on ECG.

All patients who are resuscitated from cardiac arrest but who subsequently progress to death or brain death should be evaluated as potential organ donors.

Amiodarone or lidocaine is equally acceptable for the treatment of shock refractory VF or pVT in children.
