Importance of Conclusion
Nursing students who completed the HeartCode® BLS program and practiced CPR on a voice assisted manikin were significantly more accurate in their ventilations, compressions, and single-rescuer CPR than students who had the standard instructor-led course.

- Studies show CPR skill deteriorates more rapidly than does CPR knowledge.
- Instructor-led CPR courses have potential limitations, including preset pace of course and inability to sometimes accurately assess performance or correct errors.
