Cardiac Arrest in Pregnancy

Pregnant changes to AHA

According to the 2020 AHA guidelines, Do no Delay providing chest compressions for a pregnant woman in cardiac arrest. High-quality CPR can increase the mother’s and the infant’s chance of survival. If you do not perform CPR on a pregnant woman when needed, the lives of both mother and infant are at risk.

Perform high-quality CPR for a pregnant woman in the same way as anyone else. Use and AED for a pregnant woman in cardiac arrest. If the woman begins to move, speak, blink, or otherwise react, stop CPR and roll her onto her left side.
