“Any Attempt at Resuscitation is Better Than No Attempt”

Welcome to the home of the Australian Resuscitation Council


Who is the Australian Resuscitation Council?

The Australian Resuscitation Council is a voluntary co-ordinating body which represents all major groups involved in the teaching and practice of resuscitation. 

The Australian Resuscitation Council is sponsored by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists.

The Australian Resuscitation Council produces Guidelines to meet its objectives in fostering uniformity and simplicity in resuscitation techniques and terminology. Guidelines are produced after consideration of all available scientific and published material and are only issued after acceptance by all member organisations. This does not imply, however, that methods other then those recommended are ineffective.

It is the policy of the Australian Resuscitation Council to respect the autonomy of member organisations.
