Cardiocerebral Resuscitation (CCR) Protocol

Updated:Mar 21,2014
The CCR protocol is designed for adult cardiac arrest. Patients less than 8 years of age, drowning patients, drug overdose patients, trauma patients, and respiratory arrest patients are excluded. The CCR protocol focuses on providing the optimal timing for defibrillation, minimizing interruptions to chest compressions, minimizing pauses between chest compressions and defibrillation, early administration of intravenous epinephrine, and minimizing over-ventilation during cardiac arrest.

Originating Institution: Arizona Department of Health Services
