Official 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and ECC Releasing October 2020


The American Heart Association recently announced that the official 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR & Emergency Cardiovascular Care (2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC) will be published online on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

We understand that as healthcare providers, you need to be instantaneously prepared and effective in cardiac arrest emergencies as we continue to face the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

As you serve on the front lines of saving lives, and in this unprecedented time of physical distancing, the way you deliver CPR and ECC training is evolving. As we work toward the October publication, we are closely working with the American Heart Association evaluating the implications of the new Guidelines on the way we deliver information and training to improve cardiac arrest survival and outcomes – and the impact it has on your hospitals and health systems.

The AHA is committed to resuscitation science and education

As the global source of the official resuscitation science and education guidelines used by training organizations, the AHA is moving forward with releasing 2020 Guidelines to ensure our hospitals are up-to-date on the very latest resuscitation science and education available.

Integrated directly with American Heart Association science, RQI Partners’ portfolio of digital solutions lead healthcare organizations on a journey to high-quality CPR performance and competence, maximizing lifesaving outcomes. To save more lives, healthcare providers, first responders, and lay rescuers must be competent in delivering high-quality CPR. Additionally, our resuscitation training and education helps patient care teams acquire the skills and knowledge they need to be competent as they work together to improve patient outcomes.

What 2020 AHA Guidelines materials will be released?

The American Heart Association will have the following materials available in English on October 21, with the launch of 2020 Guidelines:

  • All-new AHA Guidelines Website
  • 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC Digital Reprint
  • Highlights of the 2020 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC (in 17 languages)
  • 2020 AHA Guidelines Science In-Service eLearning Course

We plan to share more information in the coming weeks as we feel it is important for our healthcare providers to remain informed about resuscitation science and education updated because we know that high-quality CPR is the primary component in influencing survival from cardiac arrest.

Our digital solutions provide safe, distanced CPR education through a cost-effective platform, unified seamlessly with American Heart Association science. In a changing world that is still evolving, our digital solutions offer comprehensive skills and cognitive CPR education that is safe, distanced, and tailored to the needs of each individual learner.
