CPR compressions in a strip



Figure 1

After the VT was recognized, compressions were started. As you can see on the arterial line, compressions generated (as registered on the graph) pressures of about 80-100. 

Earlier study mentioned pressured of 60-80 during compression. They used pneumatic compression device at a compression rate of 60/min (study done in 1989). 

This strip captured and emphasized high quality compression. The patient in this case was converted back to SR and got adequate pressures.
