  Purpose

Bystander CPR improves survival from Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. This study examines the efficacy of ultra-brief video training for Hands-Only CPR. Subjects were randomized to one of four training conditions, then assessed for CPR skills retention.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Median Compression Depth (mm) [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after intervention or two months after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessment of resuscitation skills using a Laerdal Resusci Annie recording manikin and Laerdal PC Skill Reporting software


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Proportion of Subjects Who Assessed the Responsiveness of the Victim (Manikin) as Judged by Expert Raters [ Time Frame: 60 minutes after intervention and two months after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The proportion of the subjects who assessed the responsiveness of the victim (manikin) as judged by expert raters

Detailed Description:

Bystander CPR improves survival from Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. This study is the first of its kind to examine the efficacy of ultra-brief video training for Hands-Only CPR without the use of a manikin. The results will inform future efforts to mass train citizens in CPR. Subjects were randomized to one of four training conditions, then assessed for CPR skills retention. The four groups were 1) no training; 2) ultra-brief training video (90 seconds); 3) short training video (5 minutes) with no practice; and 4) short training video with hands-on practice. The subjects were then evaluated for CPR skills retention. One half of the subjects were evaluated on the training day, and the other half were evaluated two months later.
