Abstract
Background: The American Heart Association (AHA) has developed very concise steps when treating ventricular fibrillation; however health care professionals continue to have difficulties in following the AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) guidelines when consistently following the V-Fib algorithm, specifically when preparing to defibrillate and not performing continuous cardio pulmonary resuscitation. Methods: A comprehensive search of electronic databases, journal references and citation searching was done, reviewing articles derived from PubMed, Cinahl, AHA, and Cochran databases. Articles were reviewed from 2010-2016. Purpose: This literature clinical review will address the importance of early defibrillation without CPR interruption when initially and effectively treating Ventricular Fibrillation in order to support maintaining coronary artery perfusion pressure according to the 2015 AHA update, ACLS guidelines V-Fib Algorithm, Link et al (2015). Discussion: In the majority of time, health care professionals inappropriately may interrupt CPR to prepare for defibrillation or delay CPR after defibrillation when unsuccessfully breaking the V-Fib. Going back to 2010, AHA clearly stated the significance of not interrupting CPR for long periods of time. According to several observational studies, the average time without compressions during resuscitation varied from 25% to 50%. CPR is seen as the first line of approach in resuscitation along with early defibrillation when ventricular fibrillation is present. Implications: There has been sufficient research done on the dangers of delaying or interrupting CPR in V Fib. Therefore, more inquiring should be done regarding the causes of why healthcare professionals may interrupt CPR while preparing to defibrillate. Conclusion: Best practices in ACLS are not discipline specific but rather competency driven. Resuscitative strategies in ACLS as clinical updates, promotes best inter-professional situational awareness and are essential when promoting effective management of challenging patient scenarios within the emergent healthcare team and setting, specifically when consistently building an inter-professional culture of safety towards quality care and positive patient outcomes reliably.
