Description

The RECOVER Initiative published the first evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines in 2012. In this session, we'll review the physiology behind the recommendations for basic and advanced life support, including chest compression and ventilation recommendations, mechanisms of action of the commonly used CPR drugs, and how electrical and mechanical defibrillation work.

Objectives

1) Explain the mechanisms of blood flow generation posited by the 2 theories of chest compressions, the cardiac pump and thoracic pump theories.
2) Describe the potential benefits and risks of vasopressor therapy when used as an adjunct during CPR.
3) Explain the physiologic effects of duration of ventricular fibrillation on defibrillation efficacy and the physiology underlying the use of electrical defibrillation to terminate ventricular fibrillation.
