High Performance CPR is achieving solid results! CPR in the field, outside the hospital, looks quite different than you may remember it from the past. High Performance CPR is the preferred approach today. It involves the goal of obtaining the carotid pulse of the cardiac arrest CPR patient by first responders such as firefighters and medics, before critical transport occurs. This proven practice of resuscitation uses team CPR methods where roles are better defined and more scripted than in the past. High performance CPR establishes the priorities of the team by a fast initial assessment of consciousness, pulse and breathing and followed immediately by high quality uninterrupted chest compressions. As chest compressions begin, blood pressure rises and blood flow and oxygen are circulated to the major organs, such as the brain. Other members of the team join in and have other responsibilities. The next priority is to determine if the patient can be shocked. If so, the patient will be shocked and airway ventilations or breaths will begin as equipment is readied. In addition, during CPR, a separate member of this team is providing IV intervention and oversight of the medical care. Other responders assist in the effort with a recording of time and treatment intervals, readying the patient for transfer to the stretcher and gathering information from family or bystanders.

If the pulse can be re-obtained, the patient is immediately transferred to the medic unit and transported to the local hospital quickly. Through scientific-based data driven studies, the survivability of those in cardiac arrest, especially a witnessed cardiac arrest have risen quite dramatically. Bystander CPR is vital to the efforts of emergency responders as it sets the “foundation” for success when 911 resources arrive.
