Study demonstrates that real-time feedback devices with auditory and visual components help physicians and nurses in improving the quality of chest compressions.
Automated testing with feedback effectively detected emergency nurses who needed CPR retraining; this type of training and retesting improved skills to a predefined pass level.
Brief, frequent practice on manikins with automated feedback is an effective strategy for nurses to maintain skills in single-rescuer CPR.
Improving training before, monitoring CPR quality during, and debriefing participants after resuscitation events has the potential to improve the quality of care delivered to cardiac arrest victims.
Mastery-based learning resulted in 71% of providers maintaining mastery-performance at 4 months.
