Quality CPR, Optimal Resuscitation
Cardiovascular disease is the single greatest cause of death in the United States. Each year, upwards of a quarter of a million persons receive attempted resuscitation from cardiac arrest by Emergency Medical Services (EMS). The prognosis for the majority of these arrests remains poor.
Quality CPR is a means to improving survival from cardiac arrest. Scientific studies demonstrate when CPR is performed according to guidelines, the chances of successful resuscitation increase substantially. Minimal breaks in compressions, full chest recoil, adequate compression depth, and adequate compression rate are all components of CPR that can increase survival from cardiac arrest.
In order to have effective HP CPR ALL involved must work as a team, not as separate entities.
