AHA believes CPR Proficiency can be Improved through Frequent Simulation-Based Training

A new training model enhanced CPR skills in a clinical setting in accordance with the research presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016 during the Resuscitation Science Symposium.

At present, the hospital workers are only obligated to get formal CPR training after every 2 years.

Through this study, the researchers investigated whether CPR expertise within a hospital setting can be enhanced with the help of low dose-high frequency psychomotor simulation among hospitals by means of the American Heart Association’s Resuscitation Quality Improvement™ (RQI) mobile simulation stations.

According to the associate professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and lead study author Michael C. Kurz, M.D., M.S., “High-quality CPR is essential for functional survival from cardiac arrest. However, the opportunity to perform CPR is too infrequent currently to maintain proficiency for most providers.”
