Which of the following sequences of events describes the AHA's chain of survival?
A. Early access, integrated post-arrest care, early advanced care, early CPR, early defibrillation
B. Early advanced care, early defibrillation, integrated post-arrest care, early CPR, early access
C. Early access, early CPR, early defibrillation, early advanced care, integrated post-arrest care
D. Early access, early riser, early CPR, early advanced care
Rationale: The AHA has determined an ideal sequence of events that, if taken, can improve the chance of successful resuscitation of a patient who has an occurrence of sudden cardiac arrest: early access, early CPR, early defibrillation, early advanced care, and integrated post-arrest care. If any one of the links in the chain is absent, the patient is more likely to die.
