Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving technique for victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Despite advances in resuscitation science, basic life support remains a critical factor in determining outcomes. The American Heart Association recommendations for adult basic life support incorporate the most recently published evidence and serve as the basis for education and training for laypeople and healthcare providers who perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

In this article I revisit the results of research completed in the mid-1990s and recently reviewed with women's updated input. The basic social process named "changing focus" that women use as they negotiate the perimenopausal transition is discussed. This process consists of five parts: monitoring the voice of the woman within, listening to the voices of others, integrating the wisdom, nourishing the woman within, and becoming a wise woman. In view of continuing discoveries pertaining to the effects of symptom management treatments on perimenopausal women's health, this process continues to provide guidance for women and providers...

Adult cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been shown to improve survival for individuals suffering cardiac arrest. Despite this, the delivery of basic life support to victims outside the clinical environment remains poor, particularly as only a minority receive resuscitation. In addition, research continues to examine the optimal techniques for CPR and guidelines have been modified to reflect the latest developments. These guidelines are a compromise between simplicity and effectiveness. While the core of the guidelines remains unchanged, the latest recommendations focus on minimising any delay in the assessment of the collapsed patient and the initiation of CPR...

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation developed over the past one half century largely from empiric science and consensus opinions and recommendations. Treatment algorithms and protocols were originally developed to summarize existing recommendations for systematic and regimented use by a heterogenous group of health care providers. Now, resuscitation science and health care teams are focusing on major issues and continuing questions as sudden death rates remain undaunted and the population at risk is rapidly increasing...
