  • If You're Gonna Die... Be Near a Guy

    A new study says that CPR performed by males is more effective than CPR performed by females.

    A new study conducted by the University of Basel and University Hospital Basel, Switzerland found that women simply aren’t as effective as men are with cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    Influence of Gender on the Performance of Cardiopulmonary Rescue Teams: A Randomized, Prospective Simulator Study.

    man-giving-cprThe project studied the differences between women and men in the execution of CPR as well as their leadership skills during the lifesaving procedure. Earlier studies indicated that the effective leadership and communication during CPR increases the odds of survival for the casualty.

    Certain to breed much controversy, the study say s that women take longer to act, spend less time with their hands on the patient, and are less likely to take control of the situation.

    American CPR Training™, ILCOR< ECC, and otherguidelines say giving early, uninterrupted chest compressions and breaths is vital when someone suffers a cardiac arrest.

    216 medical school students were recruited for the study and were split evenly as 108 female and 108 male rescuers. The research team ran a simulated cardiac arrest scenario and monitored each student’s performance, measuring them on “hands-on time,” which is considered the first three minutes of uninterrupted chest compressions after a patient falls into cardiac arrest.

    The female teams took an average of 109 seconds before placing their hands on the patient, compared with 70 seconds for men. The female teams had their hands on the patient for just 87 seconds in the first three minutes of care, compared with 109 seconds for men.

    The students were also graded on their level of leadership by tracking the number of times they took control of the situation and directed others on how to assist, or explained clearly what or how to perform a task.

    The simulations were completed in same-sex teams and then again in mixed-gender teams.

    The authors found a significant difference in the quality of care when it came to comparing men to women.

    Study Objectives: Little is known about the influence of gender on resuscitation performance which may improve future education in resuscitation. The aim of this study was to compare female and male rescuers in regard to cardiopulmonary resuscitation and leadership performance.

    The female-only teams also showed less leadership communication compared with the male-only teams. Even in mixed teams, women made significantly fewer clear leadership statements than their male counterparts.

    Professor Sabina Hunziker, the study leader, stated in a university news release that even though men and women may understand CPR all the same, better training standards and practices would be especially helpful for young female physicians.

    “This suggests that more targeted measures need to be introduced to prepare and train women for emergency situations,” says Hunziker.

  • Assembly Line

    PP_blinkDid you know that on this day in 1913 Ford Motor Company instituted the world's very first moving assembly line for the Model-T?

    This occurred at Henry Ford's Highland Park, MI factory. This first assembly line cut down the man-hours required to build a Model-T from twelve hours to two and a half!

    The increase in productivity allowed Ford to accomplish his dream of making, and pricing, a vehicle that is affordable to ordinary consumers. Check out the full article here:

    Prestan Manikins with Light Monitors allows CPR Instructors to perform training in a similar manner, lining up larger groups of students for training. The light monitors both allow the students to view, understand and improve their own CPR practice performance during the hands-on training in the class - but the light monitors also allow an Instructor to know from across the room if a bystander learning CPR is performing CPR at the correct rate, depth and ratio required for most effective lifesaving!

    Prestan manikins are the present and future of CPR Training manikins with their revolutionary CPR Rate Monitor that allows for instant feedback to both instructor and student regarding the rate of chest compressions. The visual feedback from the CPR Rate Monitor gives students a real life feel of delivering 100 compressions per minute. You add on a clicker sound as the chest is pushed to the appropriate depth, allowing them to experience the true force needed to deliver real life chest compressions and the option to teach with a jaw thrust maneuver.

    PP_Feedback

    Prestan Professional manikins are definitely in a class of their own. Prestan Professional manikins are some of the more realistic to the eye and the touch on the market. We offer Adult, Child and Infant size manikins that all have their own unique features that keep to what they are suppose to represent. With the clamshell design that makes it very easy to change out lung bags to Prestan's CPR Rate Monitor that allows for instant feedback to both instructor and student regarding the rate of chest compression, Prestan manikins are in a class of their own in regard to innovative and ingenious features and design. They are available in single or multi-pack for class training purposes and also available in three different colors.

  • When to Start and Stop CPR

    While CPR Training nearly always covers when to begin giving CPR (and quality CPR course will) many times students ask "When should I stop performing CPR?"

    As a bystander, you must decide if you choose to provide voluntary assistance. If you choose to do so, first make sure the scene is safe for you as a rescuer, then you must follow these guidelines:

    Once care has been initiated, you are obligated to continue care until one of the following occurs:

    1. A qualified professional pronounces the victim dead.
    2. Observable signs of circulation return ~ Victim begins breathing on his or her own.
    3. Qualified personnel arrive who can render the same level of care or better.
    4. You become too exhausted to continue.
