Abstract

In this porcine model of fibrillatory cardiac arrest (Table 1), ventilation during basic life support does not improve 24-hour survival or neurological outcome compared to chest compressions alone when advanced life support is provided within 15 minutes of arrest. Bystander CPR can save lives; but is usually not offered, at least in part, because of reluctance to perform mouth-to-mouth ventilation. If chest compressions alone are similarly effective and more acceptable compared to chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth ventilation, the simpler technique may result in more lives saved.
