American Heart Association
The prestigious award recognizes a high level of success in implementing improvement measures for patients who suffer from severe heart attacks—otherwise known as a STEMI (ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction).
Every year, almost 300,000 people experience a STEMI. This is a type of heart attack caused by a complete blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely treatment in order to prevent death, and restore blood flow as quickly as possible.
Issues in CPR performance and resuscitation are discussed, as well as best practices in CPR training, historical practices that have to be changed, pitfalls and obstacles to proper CPR performance, the importance of feedback and feedback devices in producing positive outcomes and what hospitals have learned about CPR performance that can help prehospital teams.
