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 is often carried out poorly in clinical practice, and long interruptions in compression are observed. This prospective cohort study aimed to analyse whether chest compression quality changes when a real-time feedback system is used to provide simultaneous audiovisual feedback on chest compression quality. For this purpose, pauses in compression, compression frequency and compression depth were compared.

Cardiac arrest survival depends upon chest compression quality. Real-time audiovisual feedback may improve compression guideline adherence, particularly with the more specific 2015 guidelines.
Chest compression (CC) quality directly impacts cardiac arrest outcomes. Provider body type can influence the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); however, the magnitude of this impact whil...
Higher chest compression release velocity (CCRV) has been associated with better outcomes after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), and patient factors have been associated with variations in chest...
The aim of the study was to quantitatively measure the effect of teaching cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) using a real-time audiovisual feedback manikin system on first-year medical student's CPR ...
A growing body of literature supports the promising effect of real-time feedback to re-train runners. However, no studies have comprehensively assessed the effects of foots trike and cadence modificat...
Context: Chest compressions quality is known to be essential in cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Despite a known harmful effect of chest compressions interruptions, current guidelines still ...
There is significant data showing that the quality of CPR performed is quite poor. Recent studies have shown that when real-time visual corrective feedback is available to CPR providers, q...
The investigators will evaluate the effect of a real-time audiovisual feedback system on CPR quality during in-hospital cardiac arrest.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the quality of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation(CPR) delivered by EMS professionals and whether this quality can be improved by implementing real-...
In this study, the investigators compared mechanical and manual chest compressions in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.
A selective and potent serotonin-2 antagonist that is effective in the treatment of a variety of syndromes related to anxiety and depression. The drug also improves the subjective quality of sleep and decreases portal pressure.
The expenses incurred by a hospital in providing care. The hospital costs attributed to a particular patient care episode include the direct costs plus an appropriate proportion of the overhead for administration, personnel, building maintenance, equipment, etc. Hospital costs are one of the factors which determine HOSPITAL CHARGES (the price the hospital sets for its services).
Tight coverings for the foot and leg that are worn to aid circulation in the legs and prevent the formation of EDEMA and DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION STOCKINGS serve a similar purpose especially for bedridden patients and following surgery.
