Cardiopulmonary Cerebral Resuscitation

This webinar will go over the most recent recommendations for cardiopulmonary and cerebral resuscitation based on the RECOVER Guidelines. These guidelines were created after the first comprehensive, evidence-based review of both human and veterinary literature on CPR recommendations for small animal medicine. In this talk, we will discuss several aspects of CPR including team roles, basic life support, advanced life support, and post arrest care. The slides will follow "Part 7" of the RECOVER recommendations, which can be found at the following link:
