The ventilation/compression ratio influences the effectiveness of two rescuer advanced cardiac life support on a manikin.

Time is of crucial importance during advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Several parallel tasks have to be performed more or less simultaneously. The guidelines recommend a ventilation/ compression ratio of 1:5 in two-rescuer ACLS. This was compared with respect to time and CPR quality to an alternative method of a 2:15 ratio performed by one of the two… CONTINUE READING
