Treatment of in- and out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with prompt re-establishment of blood flow to the coronary and systemic circuits is essential for improved outcome. At present there are no conclusive data demonstrating that any of the newer options have improved outcome in clinical settings.

By measuring such indices as end-tidal carbon dioxide, electrocardiographic ventricular fibrillation waveform voltage, and dominant frequencies, which correlate with cardiac output and coronary perfusion pressure during cardiopulmonary resuscitation, newer modes of resuscitation such as phased chest and abdominal compression-decompression may be shown to improve outcome.
