Improving CPR Skills

February 27th, 2009

Since its development in the 1950s, CPR has been the mainstay of cardiac arrest treatment and has consistently demonstrated improvement of outcomes when delivered promptly and correctly to arrest victims. The importance of CPR is emphasized in many forms of introductory field training in basic and advanced cardiac life support, and the American Heart Association (AHA) provides on-going CPR guideline updates as new and innovative research becomes available.

While the AHA updates its guidelines every five years, a question remains for EMS professionals: What can I do now to improve my care and survival rates from cardiac arrest without waiting for the next guidelines update?

EMSResponder.com has recently released several suggestions on how to improve CPR skills. From training programs to actual technique, this guide is a must read for any EMS responder or health care professional.

Are your CPR skills at their best?
