Must Know Facts About CPR:
Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. Cardiac survival depends on early bystander CPR and rapid defibrillation. If both bystander CPR and defibrillation is preformed, cardiac survival post arrest is roughly 46 percent.
Cardiac arrest is not a heart attack (myocardial infarction), which is caused by a blocked vessel leading to loss of blood supply to a portion of the heart muscle. However, some people may experience cardiac arrest during a heart attack and a previous heart attack is a predictor of future risk.
Cardiac arrest is reversible in most victims if it’s treated within minutes, but the only effective treatments are good high quality CPR and delivery of an electrical shock, either with an automated external defibrillator (AED), or a manual cardiac monitor.
For infants, children and someone with known breathing problems, drowning victims or an unwitnessed arrest, standard CPR (calling 911, giving breaths alternating with compressions) is preferred.
Studies in both the in-hospital and pre-hospital settings demonstrate that chest compressions are often performed incorrectly, inconsistently, and with excessive interruption
For cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the adult victim - push hard and push fast, at least 2-2.4 inches in depth at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions a minute in the center of the chest, allowing the chest to come back up to its normal position, or recoil after each compression.
Resuscitations usually involve a number of healthcare providers from different disciplines, sometimes from different areas of an institution, who may not have worked together previously.
A team leader must be designated to coordinate the work of the team to ensure patient safety and best possible outcomes.
During cardiac arrest management communication is organized to provide effective and efficient care. All communication goes through the team leader and the team leader shares important information with the resuscitation team. Every member works efficiently and effective while displaying mutual respect.
Conscious stable patients require an assessment of their electrocardiogram or (ECG) in order to provide appropriate treatment consistent with ACLS guidelines. Although it is best to make a definitive interpretation of the ECG prior to making management decisions, the settings in which ACLS guidelines are commonly employed require a modified, empirical approach. Such an approach is guided by the following questions:
