Plethysmographic Waveform for Monitoring the Quality of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (PWMQC)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR) is the key to success for high-quality early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and its success in the restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), therefore, monitoring the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early identification ROSC is very important. Now there is no an easy, non-invasive and real-time method to monitor the quality of CPR. In this study the investigators hypothesis the pulse oximeter waveform can real-time monitor the quality of CPR ,and feedback the quality of CPR to the physicians.
