Abstract

In-hospital cardiac arrest has not been the focus of intensive research over the recent years. Since the last American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines in 2010, a number of studies and a consensus statement by AHA have been published concerning possible improvements in the management of in-hospital cardiac arrest, which are herein reviewed.
