Mechanical cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is strongly recommended if simple measures do not succeed in resuscitating the patient. We recommend that mechanical CPR is commenced after the first cycle of manual CPR.IA
We recommend that all catheter laboratories have mechanical CPR immediately available in the catheter laboratory complex in case of arrest.IC
We recommend that teams undergo regular group training to ensure that the transfer from manual CPR to automated CPR is conducted in less than 15 s.IC
