This study aims to validate a shock advisory system in automated external defibrillators (AEDs) dedicated for ECG analysis during chest compressions (CC), guiding the rescuer to stop CC for rhythms which should be terminated by a defibrillation shock and to continue CC for non-shockable rhythms. The test-validation on a large database of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest interventions shows that the performance can be improved by increasing the duration of analysis. The combination of 3 successive… CONTINUE READING
