The implementation of guidelines released by the National Resuscitation Council in 2006 involved all the main areas of resuscitation, especially basic life support and defibrillation. The emphasis was on community training, creation of simplified programmes, combining cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation, and using simpler training devices. As a result, public access defibrillation programmes have been increasingly implemented together with the CPR + automated external defibrillator programmes. A large number of instructors have also been trained.
