In this study, the investigators compared mechanical and manual chest compressions in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest cases.
In this study, the investigators retrospectively analyzed resuscitations performed over a 2-year period and compared manual and mechanical chest compressions in terms of return of spontaneous circulation, 30-day survival, and hospital discharge parameters.

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...
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.
Investigators designed the novel combining technique that rescuer start the chest compression with one hand during calling for help to the Emergency Medical System (EMS) via a cell phone w...
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.
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...
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, ...
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...
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...
The two objectives of this report are: first, to describe a comparison of chest compressions unsynchronized or synchronized to native cardiac activity in a porcine model of hypotension, and second, to...
A respiratory support system used to remove mucus and clear airway by oscillating pressure on the chest.
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.
