Brief Summary:

The chest compression depth decreases over time after starting continuous chest compression due to the rescuers' fatigue.

The investigators hypothesized that the frequency parameters from surface electromyogram from each muscle during chest compression may reflect the muscle fatigue of the rescuers.

Then investigators can identify which of the body are mainly used and get tired by continuous chest compression using surface electromyogram.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Group1
  • first : chest compression with kneeling position
  • second : chst compression with standing position
Behavioral: chest compression with kneeling position
Behavioral: chest compression with standing position
Experimental: Group2
  • first : chest compression with standing position
  • second : chst compression with kneeling position
Behavioral: chest compression with kneeling position

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. median frequency of electromyogram [ Time Frame: two weeks ]

    median frequency of electromyogram in 16 muscles during chest compression

    The muscles are flexor carpi radialis, extensor carpi radialis, biceps brachii, triceps brachii, deltoideus, erector spinae (cervical area), trapezius, rhomboid, erector spinae (thoracic area), erector spinae (lumbar), obliquus externus abdominis, rectus abdominis, pectoralis, quadriceps femoris, biceps femoris, gastrocnemius. On the dominant side of the rescuers, we will attach sixteen electrodes on these muscles.
