WHAT IS CPR.PT ?
In sudden cardiac arrest, early and high quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), with emphasis on chest compressions, is a fundamental step in the Chain of Survival. Nevertheless, several studies have shown that CPR is performed ineffectively, possibly due to irregular training and low skill retention, with major implications to the survival of the victim.
A tool for CPR training with an automated feedback system was developed aiming to improve technical skills and reinforce knowledge. The repetitive self-training allows the trainees to improve skills at their own rhythm. The feedback feature provides objective, reliable and standardized assessment of skills acquisition.
