BLS Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm - Updated 2018

Cardiac Arrest is the cessation of blood circulation due to absent or ineffective cardiac mechanical activity. Clinically, the patient is unresponsive, not breathing or only gasping, and there is no detectable pulse. Cerebral hypoxia causes LOC and failure to breathe. Agonal breaths may be observed during the first minutes after cardiac arrest.
