Abstract

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a leading cause of mortality and serious neurological morbidity in Europe. Recent studies have demonstrated the adverse physiological consequences of poor resuscitation technique and have shown that quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a critical determinant of outcome from OHCA. Telemetry of the defibrillator transthoracic impedance (TTI) trace can objectively measure quality of pre-hospital resuscitation. This study aims to analyse the impact of targeted resuscitation feedback and training on quality of pre-hospital resuscitation.
