The purpose of this investigation was to compare the efficacy of three different cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques: (a) standard cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), (b) active compression-decompression cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ACD-CPR) with the rescuer standing beside the patient (ACD-B), and (c) ACD-CPR with the rescuer in a standing position over the patient (ACD-S). The physiological responses of the rescuers when performing these techniques were also evaluated. A total of 14… CONTINUE READING
