Bystander-initiated basic life support (BLS) for the treatment of prehospital cardiac arrest increases survival but is frequently not performed due to fear and a lack of knowledge. A simple flowchart can improve motivation and the quality of performance. Furthermore, guidelines do recommend a chest compression (CC)-only algorithm for dispatcher-assisted bystander resuscitation, which may lead to increased fatigue and a loss of compression depth. Consequently, we wanted to test the hypothesis that CCs are more correctly delivered in a flowchart-assisted standard resuscitation algorithm than in a CC-only algorithm.

To understand whether the science to date has focused on single or multiple chest compression components and identify the evidence related to chest compression components to determine the need for a f...
Chest pain reduces the quality of life of patients with achalasia. Although laparoscopic Heller-Dor surgery (LHD) is a standard surgical treatment for achalasia, its therapeutic efficacy for chest pai...
Current guidelines underline the importance of high-quality chest compression during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), to improve outcomes. Contrary to this many studies show that chest compression...
Currently, chest radiography is the first-line imaging test for identifying pneumonia; chest CT is considered the reference standard. The purpose of this study was to calculate the statistical measure...
Acute chest pain is one of the most important cardinal symptoms in medicine. There are several important differential diagnoses for chest pain. Therefore, a thorough history and physical examination, ...
In this study, the investigators compared mechanical and manual chest compressions in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the new mechanical chest compression machine LifeLine ARM in healthcare professionals in simulated model of cardiac arrest.
Optimal chest compression depth during CPR is 4.56cm which is at variance with the current guidelines of 5.0-6.0cm. A change in guidelines is only worthwhile if healthcare professionals ca...
our aim was to quantitatively compare the quality of chest-compression of the new two thumb chest compression (nTTT) versus the current standard techniques: two finger technique (TFT), two...
The purpose of this study is to compare two physiotherapy techniques: chest wall compression versus chest wall compression plus increase of 10 cmH2O in inspiratory pressure.
Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
Pressure, burning, or numbness in the chest.
The posture of an individual supported by the knees and chest resting on a table.
X-ray screening of large groups of persons for diseases of the lung and heart by means of radiography of the chest.
A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.
