TOTW:2020 AHA Guidelines Recommends Early administration of Epinephrine (ACP-Scope)

New to the 2020 AHA guidelines is a recommendation for epinephrine administration as early as possible in non-shockable cardiac arrest for both adult and pediatric postulations.

A systematic review and met analysis showed increased ROSC and survival to hospital discharge in those given epinephrine. Observational data suggest there are better outcomes when epinephrine is given sooner.
