INTRODUCTION Good quality basic life support (BLS) improves outcome during cardiac arrest. As fatigue may reduce BLS performance over time we wanted to examine the quality of chest compressions in a single-rescuer scenario during prolonged BLS with different compression:ventilation ratios (C:V ratios). MATERIAL AND METHODS Professional paramedics were asked to perform single-rescuer BLS with C:V ratios of 15:2, 30:2 and 50:2 for 10 min each in random order.
