BACKGROUND Pauses in chest compressions during cardiopulmonary resuscitation have been shown to correlate with poor outcomes. In an attempt to minimize these pauses, the American Heart Association recommends charging the defibrillator during chest compressions. While simulation work suggests decreased pause times using this technique, little is known about its use in clinical practice. METHODS We conducted a multi-center, retrospective study of defibrillator charging at three US academic… CONTINUE READING
