Comparison of the quality of basic life support provided by rescuers trained using the 2005 or 2010 ERC guidelines
Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine, 08/10/2012
Jones CM et al. – The new European Resuscitation Council (ERC) guidelines lead to a greater proportion of lay rescuers performing chest compressions at an erroneously fast rate and may therefore worsen basic life support (BLS) efficacy. Additional study is required in order to define the clinical impact of compressions performed to a greater depth and at too fast a rate.
