Chest-Compression-Only Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Chest-Compression-Only Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
The compression-to-ventilation ratio for basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was changed from 15:2 to 30:2, but there are few human studies comparing chest-compression-only CPR with standard CPR. A new paper from the  Japanese Circulation Society Resuscitation Science Study Group  looks to examine how effective chest -compression-only CPR is when examined against 30:2 CPR   Chest-Compression-Only Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in the 30:2 Compression-to-Ventilation Ratio Era.   Methods and Results: From the All-Japan Utstein Registry in the 30:2CPR era, 173,565 adult cardiac arrests witnessed by bystanders were included. On arrival at the scene, emergency medical services responders assessed the status of dispatcher-assisted CPR instruction and bystander CPR technique (chest compression with or without rescue breathing). The primary endpoint was favorable neurological outcome 30 days after cardiac arrest. The prevalence of dispatcher-assisted CPR instruction increased year by year, contributing to an overall increase of chest-compression-only bystander CPR from 20.6% to 35.0%. Among 78,150 patients receiving bystander CPR, favorable neurological outcome did not differ between dispatcher-assisted and -unassisted CPR (adjusted odds ratio [OR], 1.00; 95% confidence interval...
