Abstract

Since cardiopulmonary resuscitation was first described in 1960, it has become a standardized medical intervention. Separate guidelines have been developed for the neonatal and pediatric population, but none exist for the elderly population. This review will discuss recent available outcome data on resuscitation of the elderly and the known physiologic changes with aging that may affect decisions made during resuscitation.
