This article focuses on CPR, which is just one aspect of resuscitation care. Other interventions, such as the administration of pharmacologic agents, cardiac defibrillation, invasive airway procedures, post–cardiac arrest therapeutic hypothermia, [18, 19, 20, 21, 22] the use of echocardiography in resuscitation, [23] and various diagnostic maneuvers, [24, 25] are beyond the scope of this article. For more information, see the Resuscitation Resource Center; for specific information on the resuscitation of neonates, see Neonatal Resuscitation.

See the guidelines sections detailed later in the article.
