Consensus document

The 2005 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science with Treatment Recommendations (CoSTR) summarises the scientific evidence supporting all aspects of resuscitation and assigns a level to each of the studies referenced.

Where consensus could be achieved, treatment recommendations were made, but when the evidence was conflicting these were often relatively non-specific.
