Special Issue Information

Currently, new techniques, monitoring and diagnosis Point Of Care (POC) systems such as ultrasound or capnography, are proving to be complementary in the management, assistance and evaluation of survival in the short and medium term in patients with heart attack.

On the other hand, the evaluation of new technologies and their incorporation into practice has long been posing a complex strategic reflection, in the field of innovation and transfer planning in health sciences. At the same time, it becomes a challenge for the scientific, healthcare and teaching community.

The role of new information and communication technologies, and the growth and adaptation of new simulation-based learning strategies, are also proving to have a fundamental role in the implementation of these processes in complex environments and the incorporation of these tools within new guidelines for the management of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The processes of innovation and incorporation of new guidelines for the management of cardiopulmonary resuscitation also consist of the comprehensive management of said processes, their scalability and transfer.

It is, therefore, that sometimes a complex scenario is presented when it comes to reducing the variability in use and its adaptation within training strategies, homogenizing its management and use as an integral part of resuscitation efforts.

This special edition is born with the clear intention of bringing new approaches and experiences in situations of cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the transfer of knowledge and implementation.
