Special Issue Information

Cardiac arrest has been a leading causes of death and complex lethal condition with public health burden due to irreversible neurologic injury or functional disability. However, resuscitating a patient with cardiac arrest is still challenging; therefore, better resuscitation strategies are necessary.

The Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (KACPR) aims to make our society safe and healthy from cardiac arrest by making people aware of the danger of cardiac arrest and the importance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and teaching and distributing CPR. Since our foundation in 2002, our association has made various efforts for the spread of CPR, including establishment of the Korean guidelines for CPR in 2006, 2011, 2015, and 2020, education of CPR through our educational network, development of Korean-style CPR educational programs such as Korean Basic Life Support (KBLS) course, Korean Advanced Life Support (KALS) course publication of related books, and annual scientific symposium.

This special Issue of the Signa Vitae on “Selected papers from Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation” is launched by the KACPR, a non-profit scientific organization with the primary aim to improve and spread resuscitation for cardiac arrest. In this Issue, we would like to invite various types of research from worldwide experts to contribute in the field of resuscitation. This special issue highlights original research articles as well as review articles of topics including improvements in CPR training, the quality of CPR, resuscitation strategies, changes in public awareness to CPR, better emergency medical system organization, impact of legislation on the public CPR education, prediction of neurologic outcome, trend in resuscitation outcomes, resuscitation modalities, and post-resuscitation care. We believe that readers could obtain useful information from this issue and can create a healthy society with CPR.

Published paper in the special from KACPR can receive a 30% APC discount.
