When to stop CPR
If the patient regains a pulse, if the area becomes unsafe, if cardiac arrest last longer than 30 minutes, if the rescuer(s) is too exhausted or ordered to stop. Or, if these complications arise: Fractures, punctures, lung ruptures or collapses, rib separation, bruises of the heart or lungs.
For patients in cardiac arrest with a nonshockable rhythm, it is reasonable to administer epinephrine as soon as feasible.
