cardiopulmonary resuscitation asses

Sofía Ruiz de Gauna, Digna M González-Otero, Jesus Ruiz, James K Russell
BACKGROUND: Quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is key to increase survival from cardiac arrest. Providing chest compressions with adequate rate and depth is difficult even for well-trained rescuers. The use of real-time feedback devices is intended to contribute to enhance chest compression quality. These devices are typically based on the double integration of the acceleration to obtain the chest displacement during compressions. The integration process is inherently unstable and leads to important errors unless boundary conditions are applied for each compression cycle...

BACKGROUND: Dispatcher-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DA-CPR), in which 9-1-1 dispatchers provide CPR instructions over the telephone, has been shown to nearly double the rate of bystander CPR. We sought to identify factors that hampered the identification of cardiac arrest by 9-1-1 dispatchers and prevented or delayed the provision of dispatcher-assisted CPR chest compressions. METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed dispatch recordings for 476 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occurring between January 1, 2011, and December 31, 2011...

OBJECTIVE: To find out the attitudes of health professionals and family members of the deceased, about a witnessed cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedure. METHODS: A cross-sectional analytical study was carried out at Combined Military Hospital Lahore from January 2007 to June 2007. Two hundred and ninety persons related to 190 deceased patients, 40 physicians and 20 nurses were interviewed and were asked to fill a proforma to asses their views about presence of family members during a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is essential part of the first aid skill. Constant attention is given to education in CPR mainly among adolescents. The aim of our epidemiological study was to asses the actual level of theoretical knowledge in CPR. METHODS AND RESULTS: We have developed a simple questionnaire including 17 items with 4 possible answers, just one correct. The questionnaire was distributed to students of middle schools excluding those with medical specialisation...
