Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation


The Council on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is one of the busiest and most productive scientific councils of the PHA. Created in 1982 as one of the original Councils, its aim is to promote CPR education and training of both medical and lay personnel.

Its network has grown significantly, and it has established linkages and cooperation with international resuscitation councils. Today, this body continues to give seminars and updates on adult basic and advanced cardiac life support to medical and paramedical personnel, and workshops on basic life support to the non-medical community. 

The Philippine Heart Association National Expanded Council on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a FULL MEMBER of the Resuscitation Council of Asia (RCA), the Asian representative society of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). It was accepted as the 5th member on November 5, 2009, joining Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, and officially inducted on June 9, 2010.

ILCOR is the accredited leader in establishing international guidelines on resuscitation, and is composed of the American Heart Association, the European Resuscitation Council, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation, the Resuscitation Councils of Southern Africa, the Resuscitation Councils of Asia and the Inter American Heart Foundation.
