OBJECTIVES This study was designed to test the hypothesis that active compression-decompression cardiopulmonary resuscitation increases transmitral flow and end-decompression left ventricular volume over levels achieved with standard manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation. BACKGROUND Recently, cardiopulmonary resuscitation incorporating active compression and decompression of the chest has been demonstrated to improve hemodynamic status in a canine model and in humans after cardiac arrest… CONTINUE READING
