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
AHA resuscitation 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.
