What is the RECOVER Initiative?
The Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) initiative is the internationally recognized authority in veterinary CPR that was spearheaded by a team of veterinary emergency and critical care specialists in 2010 with the goal of developing and disseminating the first true evidence-based veterinary cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines. RECOVER is a collaborative program between the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) and Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS)
The RECOVER Initiative has 3 goals:
  1. Guidelines: Develop and update evidence-based, consensus veterinary CPR guidelines through exhaustive review of the primary CPR literature.
  2. Education: Provide the only standardized CPR training to veterinary professionals and pet owners offering CPR certification through the ACVECC and endorsed by VECCS.
  3. Research: Inform and support scientific research to improve our approach to CPR in animals.
Through the efforts of over 100 veterinary specialists working with the RECOVER initiative, the very first evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines were published in the Journal of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2012.
The RECOVER Initiative is a non-profit, volunteer-based program within ACVECC and VECCS dedicated to conducting high-quality education, evidence search, and guideline creation. Learn more about the RECOVER Initiative and veterinary CPR by exploring this web site.
