Continuous Chest Compressions vs AHA Standard CPR of 30:2

The primary aim of the trial is to compare survival to hospital discharge after continuous chest compressions (CCC) versus standard American Heart Association (AHA) recommended cardiopulmo...

How to Learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

the aim of the study is to evaluate two methods of teaching cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the context of chest compression quality. We will evaluate the usefulness of the application cp...

Effectiveness of Chest Compressions Under Mild Hypoxia

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of breathing a slightly reduced amount of oxygen will have on a rescuer's ability to provide chest compressions during CPR.

Single-rescuer Pediatric Resuscitation

The objective of this pilot study was to compare the manual chest compressions (CC) versus CC feedback device TrueCPR vs mechanical CC device LifeLine ARM during simulated pediatric cardio...

Optimum Hand Position During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

The almost evidences of the optimal hand position during compression had been based on chest computed tomography (CT) or chest plain films of patients for investigating the effective locat...

Kinetics of manual and automated mechanical chest compressions.

Early onset of adequate chest compression is mandatory for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) following cardiac arrest. Transmission of forces from chest strain to the heart may be variable between m...

Variability in chest compression rate calculations during pediatric cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The mathematical method used to calculate chest compression (CC) rate during cardiopulmonary resuscitation varies in the literature and across device manufacturers. The objective of this study was to ...

The Maximum Diameter of the Left Ventricle May Not Be the Optimum Target for Chest Compression During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: A Preliminary, Observational Study Challenging the Traditional Assumption.

Researchers have assumed that compressing the point beneath which the left ventricle (LV) diameter is maximum (P_max.LV) would improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation outcomes. Defining the midsternum, ...

Caregiver Characteristics Associated With Quality of Cardiac Compressions on an Adult Mannequin With Real-Time Visual Feedback: A Simulation-Based Multicenter Study.

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...

Differences in the performance of resuscitation according to the resuscitation guideline terminology during infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation: "Approximately 4 cm" versus "at least one-third the anterior-posterior diameter of the chest".

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of resuscitation guideline terminology on the performance of infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.

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.
