Cardiac arrest leads to ischemia of important organs such as the brain, so you must start delivering blood manually by pressing the heart repeatedly, and this is easy, but the blood must also be saturated with oxygen, so the lung must be supplied with oxygen by blowing air directly into the mouth, and this What makes passersby hesitate to perform resuscitation for people they do not know, so there are many research centers trying to find out whether repeated pressure on the heart alone is useful in saving life or not, in the following recent research proves that repeated pressure on the heart is beneficial even if no procedure is performed artificial breathing.

On 1/4/2019, a Swedish study of  -CPR  was published in the journal Circulation. Here is a translation of Medscape’s article on this study, which was published on 4/2/2019:

A new study reports that pedestrian CPR rates for people who are having a heart attack on the road nearly doubled and   CO-CPR rates sixfold over the past 18 years in Sweden.

The researchers found that any type of bystander CPR was associated with a doubling of survival compared to not doing any CPR before emergency service arrived.

Dr. says. “These findings support continued support for the inclusion of CO-CPR as an option in CPR guidelines,” Jacob Hollenberg, Ph .

In this paper, researchers analyzed data from more than 30,000 bystanders who reported the Swedish CPR registry between 2000 and 2017. The 30-day probability of survival was significantly greater in patients who received CPR and CO- CPR compared to those who did not receive any type of resuscitation.

Dr. said. Hollenberg: “Importantly, we need robust trials to answer the question of whether CPR is superior to CO-CPR in cases where bystanders have had previous CPR training. In Sweden, a robust, large-scale trial is currently being conducted to answer the question: this question “.

Benjamin Abella, director of the Center for Resuscitation Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia, told | Medscape Cardiology: “This is an important study.”

He then explained, “There has been some reluctance to abandon ventilators because its importance during CPR is an old and well-established concept.”

He said: “There has been a huge push in Sweden to improve the education of bystanders , CO-CPR, which is easier to teach and an easier message to hear from people because they often don’t want to put their mouths on a stranger. This is one of the first studies to clearly show that we can Spreading CO-CPR as an educational strategy and that we can improve survival not only by doing CPR, but also by doing CO-CPR .”

Abella added that the study is “one of the strongest evidence to date supporting the idea that we should only be studying BPR. In the United States, we still have a long way to go in educating the public and making people fully aware that CO-CPR is an option.”

“The lack of awareness that CO-CPR is an option is an important barrier for people currently doing CPR,” Abella said.
