The SimPad technology automatically recorded and stored both the primary and the secondary outcomes of interest, including chest compression rate, percentage of appropriate chest compression rate, chest compression depth, percentage of appropriate chest compression depth, percentage of complete chest recoil, ventilation volume, ventilations per minute, and CCF%.
To carry out CPR, a person presses up and down on the casualty's chest (chest compressions) and gives them a series of rescue breaths to help save their life.
Lay rescuers should not interrupt excellent chest compression to palpate for pulses or check for the return of spontaneous circulation and should continue CPR until an electric shock machine is made ready to give a shock, a doctor to assume care, or the patient wakes up.
One previous study that examined the differences in the quality of dispatcher-assisted chest compression between video coaching and audio coaching and the video coaching showed better results regarding the compression rate, the accuracy of the compression site, and the minimisation of the hands-off time [12].
