The outcomes of the Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) initiative were first published in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2012 and are still used today. This systematic review of over 1000 scientific papers provided us with evidence-based guidelines for dealing with cardiopulmonary arrest in dogs and cats.
