Head Up CPR Took Center Stage 
at this year’s American Heart Association Resuscitation Science Symposium.

Dr. Johanna Moore was an invited presenter to discuss Head Up CPR as part of the Revisiting Basic Life Support Plenary Session.

In her presentation, Dr. Moore outlined the concept of Head Up (HUP) CPR for meeting attendees — from its origins and the science behind it, to the do’s and don’ts of HUP CPR, the evolution of the science and recent success stories.

 

Dr. Moore also covered exciting new findings in a Late Breaking Resuscitation Science Oral Presentation: Faster time to elevation of the head and thorax during cardiopulmonary resuscitation increases likelihood of return of spontaneous circulation after out of hospital cardiac arrest. 

 

Key Takeaway: Early application of HUP CPR is associated with a higher likelihood of resuscitation.
