Despite improved chest compression
rate and CCF% with the use of the accelerometer feedback device, we observed a trend toward lower compression depth in the intervention arm than in the control group.

and inappropriate shocks: A comparison of manual and semi-automatic defibrillation attempts," Resuscitation, vol.
During the last two decades it has been reported that the faster and deeper chest compressions
improve the survival rate .
Compared with continuous mechanical chest compression-assisted PCI, ECMO seems to provide more effective circulatory support than continuous mechanical chest compressions
with LUCAS device in cardiac arrest, but implantation of the ECMO usually takes longer and often requires extra staff with special skills, such as a cardiovascular surgeon and a perfusionist.
Table 4 presents the association between gender and CPR, specifically the chest compression
depth, chest compression
rate, and ventilation.
* C-A-B instead of A-B-C: Initiate chest compressions
before giving rescue breaths
The majority of students (69%) indicated they agreed with the statement that chest compression
performed well will result in spontaneous circulation.
A review of the literature on patient care, physiology, biomechanics, emergency medical services and diagnostic imaging was conducted to examine rib cage injuries resulting from chest compressions
during adult CPR.
If the medical trainer applies a chest compression
that is too weak, Stan will sense this and will give feedback showing that an improper amount of blood volume is being pumped.
A pilot study performed in King County, Washington, showed a 3.5% increase in survival with chest compressions
alone when compared with chest compressions
with mouth-to-mouth ventilation.
In the case of both infants and small children, give breaths during a pause after every fifth chest compression
quality was evaluated by assessing the average compression depth and rate and incomplete chest recoil ratio.
