Low Dose-High Frequency, Case Based Psychomotor CPR Training Demonstrates High Levels of Program Compliance With Good CPR Quality Metrics

Panchal et al. Circulation. 2015;132:A18403

Importance of Conclusion

Low dose-high frequency, case based psychomotor training is a feasible method to enhance CPR skill retention in the hospital.

Key Points

  • High-quality CPR is critical for survival from cardiac arrest, but many providers in hospital settings have infrequent opportunities to perform CPR to maintain proficiency.
  • Performance metrics from this study demonstrate high-quality CPR in Q2 and Q3, indicating CPR skill retention. In combined exercises (Q4), compressions are improved while ventilations deteriorate.
  • Program compliance was high through four quarters of training.
