Continuous Chest Compressions Shown to Save More Lives

Guidelines-based CPR saves more non-shockable cardiac arrest victims

Study Highlights:
  • CPR can save someone with cardiac arrest even if they don’t respond to a defibrillator.
  • People with non-shockable cardiac arrest are more likely to live if they receive CPR based on recent guidelines emphasizing chest compressions.
  • The American Heart Association’s CPR guidelines emphasizing chest compressions are saving more lives, according to a new study.

DALLAS — People who have a cardiac arrest that can’t be helped by a defibrillator shock are more likely to survive if given CPR based on updated guidelines that emphasize chest compressions, according to research reported in the American Heart Association journal, Circulation.
