The Importance of CPR
Sudden Cardiac Arrest occurs when the electrical system of the heart stops working effectively the heart will unexpectedly stop pumping, when this occurs, blood stops flowing to the heart, brain and other vital organs and within seconds, the victim collapses and becomes unresponsive. As a result of this death will occur within the first few minutes.
All the victims of sudden cardiac arrest require CPR immediately. The main reason to perform CPR is that it helps to pump oxygenated blood around the body to protect vital organs, in particular the heart. The 2015 Resuscitator Guidelines elevated CPR as an essential part of rescue and states that CPR is CRITICAL if a ZOLL AED PLUS® Defibrillator advises “No Shock”. In the event a shock is advised it still needs to be accompanied by high quality CPR.
To provide high quality CPR you need to provide at least 100 to 120 beats per minute of chest compressions at a depth between 5 and 6 centimetres, allow complete chest recoil after each compression and try to minimise interruptions in chest compressions.
