A recent study proposed that bystanders with the help of CRP techniques can considerably increase the survival rates of cardiac arrest patients. These passerby through the phone instructions of 911 can work really well before the medical team reaches the scene.
Bentley Bobrow, medical director of the Bureau of Emergency Medicine Services and Trauma System informed that they closely analyzed the aggressive use of telephonic training of CPR. Later on, the report revealed that the telephonic guideline of 911 operators boosts the survival rate of cardio patients up to 11%. However, previously the proportion of the survival of cardiac patients was merely 8.4 percent.
Generally, cardiac arrest occurs when the heart develops an arrhythmia, which compels it to stop beating. It is a slightly different from the typical heart attacks in which merely the blood flow is blocked from the heart.
Moreover, Bobrow notified that CPR instructions were offered to passers-by in almost 46 % percent of the cases. However, after this report, the officials intend to increase it to a greater level.
In addition, the current study demonstrated that CPR has the best method to improve the health of the cardiac arrest patients at an extremely low expense.
As per the reports, every year 359, 00 people go through sudden cardiac arrest in the United States. Unfortunately, 90 percent of the patients faced death due to the late arrival of the medical team.
The report will be presented at the AHA meeting on Saturday.
