…..Resuscitation (ILCOR) produces a set of guidelines every five years. The recommendations are developed from evolving research collected from around the globe. A lengthy review process is then undertaken that leads to member countries producing their own guidelines. In New Zealand, they are provided jointly through ANZCOR, the Australian and New Zealand Committee on Resuscitation. The 30:2 ratio for CPR was first introduced in 2005 and has not changed since.
