Figures and Tables from this paper

Which position should we take during newborn resuscitation? A prospective, randomised, multicentre simulation trial.

The quality of CCs in newborns depends on the location of the patient and the rescuers, and the optimal form of resuscitation of newborns is resuscitation on the rescuer's forearm.

An alternative method of chest compression from over-the-head during cardiopulmonary resuscitation

The demonstrated higher quality of CPR in the simulated research using the OTH method conducted by one person justifies the use of this method in a wider range of emergency interventions than only for CPR conducted in confined spaces.

Is Mouth-to-mouth Ventilation Effective in Lifeguards?Comparing the Effects between 30:2 Algorithm Versus Hands-only. A Simulation Study

Mouth-to-mouth ventilation performed by lifeguards (without devices) was not effective and when ventilations were not performed, the number of high-quality compressions increased in absolute values.

Is mouth-to-mouth ventilation effective in first responders? Comparing the effects between 30 : 2 algorithm versus hands-only. An exploratory pilot simulation study

Mouth-to-mouth ventilations performed by first responders during simulated scenario not met European Resuscitation Council guideline based targets to ventilation, despite being performed by well-trained providers.

Adult Basic Life Support☆

Airway and ventilation management during cardiopulmonary resuscitation and after successful resuscitation

Current evidence supports a stepwise approach to airway management based on patient factors, rescuer skills and the stage of resuscitation, including the relative roles of basic and advanced airway and ventilation techniques during CPR and after ROSC in adults.

Pediatric Life Support☆

Adult Basic Life Support: 2020 International Consensus on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Science With Treatment Recommendations.

Evidence evaluations performed for 22 topics that resulted in the most extensive task force discussions included CPR during transport, CPR before calling for help, resuscitation care for suspected opioid-associated emergencies, feedback for CPR quality, and analysis of rhythm during chest compressions.

Airway Management During Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

This review summarizes the updated literature on airway management during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). It provides guidance for clinicians to carefully incorporate the most recent



Trial of Continuous or Interrupted Chest Compressions during CPR.

In patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, continuous chest compressions during CPR performed by EMS providers did not result in significantly higher rates of survival or favorable neurologic function than did interruptedchest compressions.

Bystander-initiated chest compression-only CPR is better than standard CPR in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

There is already clinical and statistical evidence to support the superiority of the compression-only CPR in terms of survival at hospital discharge, as there are only three randomized trials on this topic, including witnessed and not-witnessed cardiac arrests.

Conventional Versus Compression-Only Versus No-Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation for Pediatric Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

The findings of this population-based study of pediatric OHCA in Japan support randomized clinical trials comparing conventional versus compression-only CPR in children, with conventional CPR preferred until such controlled comparative data are available, and either method preferred over no-bystander CPR.

Chest-compression-only bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the 30:2 compression-to-ventilation ratio era. Nationwide observational study.

In the 30:2 CPR era, dispatcher-assisted CPR instruction contributed to an increase ofchest-compression-only bystander CPR, supporting the use of chest-compressed-only CPR for bystander-witnessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in all adults.

Compression-only CPR or standard CPR in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

This prospective, randomized study showed no significant difference with respect to survival at 30 days between instructions given by an emergency medical dispatcher, before the arrival of EMS personnel, for compression-only CPR and instructions for standard CPR in patients with suspected, witnessed, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
