Author: Deyse Santoro

Cardiopulmonary arrest is a fault that requires immediate intervention. This integrative review aims to identify what scientific production has offered to nurses as a subsidy to make your activeness on the service to in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest and devise an algorithm to guide nurses in guiding the team before a stop cardiopulmonary assisted in intensive care and in their decision making about defibrillation. For the selection of items we used the Medline, Lilacs, SciELO and BDENF and the sample of this review consisted of 10 articles. The results showed that there is a difference when comparing the national articles, which address more conceptual issues, international, which have a greater emphasis on the role of the nurse facing the cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It was proposed also an algorithm considering 6 steps of Basic Life Support, in order to guide the nurse in front of a cardiopulmonary arrest and in front of decisionmaking defibrillation in intensive care environment. Is finally stresses the importance of updating by the nurses as the new guidelines from the American Heart Association 2015 for service in cardiopulmonary arrest.
