CPR Data Debriefing by Hospital Responders Improves CPR Performance and Increases Initial Survival Rate Following Cardiac Arrest
Date:5/26/2008

cripts from the prior week's resuscitations and analyze CPR performance including chest compression rate and depth, ventilation rate, and undesired pauses in compressions.

Only in recent years has it been possible to measure CPR performance in a clinical setting. With its data collection and review capabilities, Q-CPR allows resuscitation leaders in hospitals to use valuable feedback from actual cardiac arrest cases to supplement classroom-based training methodologies for professional responders.

The trial results demonstrate that CPR performance quality improved for study participants who received post-resuscitation feedback compared to a control group of professionals who did not receive educational intervention. Specifically, the results show that:

-- During the educational intervention period, there was significant

improvement on CPR performance measures, compared to the control period

including:

-- Faster chest compressions

-- Deeper chest compressions

-- Decreased pauses in chest compressions, in general, as well as

around the time of defibrillation

-- Decreased ventilation rates

-- These improvements in CPR performance correlated with an increased rate

of initial survival (or "return of spontaneous circulation", also

termed "ROSC") in the RAPID group.

In recent years, several studies documented that medical professionals were performing poor CPR that deviated from consensus guidelines, despite rescuer training and certification.(1)(2)(3) These studies were a catalyst for the 2005 AHA Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care to place a renewed emphasis on CPR training and education.(4) Yet, two years later, there is still a need for novel CPR training techniques to improve quality.

"As the trial demonstrates, balancing the correct number of breaths with the exact depth and rate of chest c
