Misunderstanding of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

It is not unusual that there will be misunderstandings when emergency operators by phone should instruct people who are trying to save the lives of cardiac arrest victims. It shows a master’s thesis by Helena North Ljungqvist, lecturer at the Department of Health Sciences, Luleå University of Technology.


Cardiac Arrest, Hypothermia, and Resuscitation Science

Ab morgen…

This course will explore new breakthroughs in the treatment of patients during cardiac arrest and after successful resuscitation, including new approaches to cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR and post-arrest care. Topics will include: 1 the underlying challenges of cardiac arrest in public health, 2 the important role of chest compressions and ventilations, and new thinking about how to improve these approaches in resuscitation care, 3 the role of defibrillation and the exciting growth of automatic external defibrillation AED programs, and 4 the new science of targeted temperature management, also known as therapeutic hypothermia, to improve brain function after circulation is restored. This course is designed for a broad audience including the lay public, emergency medical personnel and other health care providers.


The course “Cardiac Arrest, Hypothermia, and Resuscitation Science” by Assistant Professor Benjamin Abella, MD MPhil from the University of Pennsylvania, will be offered free of charge to everyone on the Coursera platform. Sign up at

Compression-only CPR improves survival with good brain function

Chest compression-only CPR performed by bystanders — without rescue breathing — keeps more people alive with good brain function after having a sudden cardiac arrest External link, according to a Japanese study reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.

Study Highlights:

  • A new Japanese study shows that early compression-only CPR, without rescue breathing, kept more people alive with good brain function after they had a sudden cardiac arrest.
  • Survival rates of more than 40 percent were noted when cardiac arrests were observed, bystanders provided early compression-only CPR, and an electric shock was given from a publicly accessed defibrillator
