Pit Crew CPR

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training that includes real-time audiovisual feedback and that emphasizes a "pit crew" or team approach to prehospital care for cardiac arrest patients has been shown to increased survival by almost 60 percent.

The results of a clinical trial of scenario-based training were published online yesterday in Annals of Emergency Medicine ("The Influence of Scenario-Based Training and Real-Time Audiovisual Feedback on Pre-hospital Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Quality and Survival from Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest").

MVEMSA has developed a short video to introduce the concept of Pit Crew CPR.
