Description

This module outlines the correct and effective technique for performing chest compressions for adults in cardiac arrest. Correct performance of chest compressions relies on various factors that are within the control of the nurse. Therefore, it is essential that nurses have comprehensive knowledge of this vital skill. Techniques that deviate from evidence-based recommendations may lead to an ineffective resuscitation attempt and unfavourable outcomes for patients.

Accurate hand placement on the patient’s chest is vital to ensure the heart is compressed effectively.
Adhering to the recommended depth and rate of compression is fundamental to perfuse the myocardium.
Interruptions to chest compressions should be kept to a minimum.

Objectives

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
List the equipment used to perform chest compressions.
Demonstrate resuscitation of an adult in cardiac arrest.
Relate the concept of early defibrillation to survival of the patient.
