The article provides information on the development of the International Liason Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). The ILCOR was founded by several international medical organizations which focused on developing consistent guidelines for pediatric and adult emergency life support. In addition, the ILCOR process also focuses on neonatal resuscitation and provides an international mechanism for critical evaluation of relevant scientific evidence.
