Background

CHALLENGE

Infrequent CPR practice among healthcare providers leads to skill degradation, which reduces patient survival chances.

1

RESEARCH

…highlights the importance of regular practice to maintain the quality of compression and ventilation skills. The key to countering this skill degradation is brief, regular practice, termed low-dose/high-frequency training.

2

SOLUTION

Based on this principle, the American Heart Association and Laerdal created the Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) Program that enhances CPR skills by enabling regular, brief training sessions.

3

The RQI Program uses realistic scenarios and a mobile Simulation Station for quarterly in-hospital training, to help healthcare providers practice and retain CPR skills. 

The RQI program has demonstrated considerable success. However, the hardware supporting the program and the way of engaging with this hardware presents a scope for improvement.
