CPR Effectiveness at Preventing Mortality

Faculty Sponsor(s)

Jean Coffey

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine which kind of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is effective at preventing mortality in out-of-hospital adults who experience cardiac arrest as discussed in the literature. Our literature review showed that chest compressions alone are just as effective at preventing mortality as CPR that includes rescue breathing. The problem includes individuals dying after CPR due to lack of knowledge about how to appropriately perform CPR with rescue breathing.
