EMS providers will demonstrate a new CPR technique called High Performance CPR. Qual¬ity CPR improves sur¬vival from car¬diac arrest. Min¬i¬mal breaks in com¬pres¬sions, full chest recoil, ade¬quate com¬pres¬sion depth, and ade¬quate com¬pres¬sion rate are all com¬po¬nents of CPR that can increase sur¬vival from car¬diac arrest. Together, these com-po¬nents com¬bine to cre¬ate high per¬for¬mance CPR.
