Importance of Conclusion
The use of real-time feedback with debriefing that incorporates clinical data from an actual
resuscitation event is an effective tool to improve measurement of CPR quality and initial patient
survival from in-hospital cardiac arrest.
- Equipment to measure and record CPR performance during actual resuscitation events has the potential to change CPR training and improve patient outcomes.
- Combining CPR performance feedback with debriefing was associated with an increased rate of return of spontaneous circulation when compared with the use of performance feedback alone.
