The lack of blood flow to the brain and other organs during cardiac arrest can cause a person to lose consciousness, become disabled or die if not treated immediately. Treatment after providing Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) must continue post-resuscitation in order to optimize patient outcomes. Survivors often experience a combination of complex medical needs that have a significant impact on quality of life. This presentation will provide information on the demographics and statistics of cardiac arrest and effective cardiac arrest management including the ACLS algorithm and code status. Anoxic brain injury and post ACLS acute care treatment courses including targeted temperature management (TTM) and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) placement will also be presented.
