What is CPR?
CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
The American Heart Association invites you to share our vision: a world where no one dies from cardiac arrest. Every year, 350,000 people die from cardiac arrest in the United States. Big number. Bigger opportunity. With your help, we can bring that number down to zero.
Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
High-Quality CPR Saves Lives
High-quality CPR is the primary component in influencing survival from cardiac arrest. To save more lives, healthcare providers must be competent in delivering high-quality CPR, and patient care teams must be coordinated and competent working together effectively.
High-quality CPR performance metrics include:
Chest compression fraction >80%
Compression rate of 100-120/min
Compression depth of at least 50 mm (2 inches) in adults and at least 1/3 the AP dimension of the chest in infants and children
No excessive ventilation
Medfusioninkk training programs help you achieve this level of competency through both individual and team skills practice and testing in a variety of real-world circumstances and settings.
BLS stands for Basic Life Support, which is a type of CPR course that is specifically designed for healthcare professionals. BLS courses cover similar material to basic CPR courses, but they go into greater depth and detail, and they are designed for people who may need to perform CPR or other life-saving interventions as part of their job.
