    We are pleased to provide access links to ILCOR CoSTR, the science behind the 2015 AHA and ERC Guidelines. The most recent ILCOR 2015 International Consensus Conference on CPR and ECC Science With Treatment Recommendations was held in Dallas in February 2015, and this publication contains the consensus science statements and treatment recommendations developed with input from the ILCOR task forces, the invited participants, and public comment.

    The Parts of this CoSTR publication include a summary of the ILCOR processes of evidence evaluation and management of potential or perceived conflicts of interest, and then reports of the consensus of the task forces on adult basic life support (BLS; including CPR quality and use of an automated external defibrillator [AED]); advanced life support (ALS; including post–cardiac arrest care); acute coronary syndromes (ACS); pediatric BLS and ALS; neonatal resuscitation; education, implementation, and teams (EIT); and first aid.

    The 2015 CoSTR publication is not a comprehensive review of every aspect of resuscitation medicine; not all topics reviewed in 2010 were rereviewed in 2015.
