New publication: Telephone CPR Instructions in Emergency Dispatch Systems: Qualitative Survey of 911 Call Centers.
Comments from Dr. Dameff: "CPR is the most important intervention to perform for cardiac arrest. High quality and timely CPR is not often done. Emergency operators can teach people calling 911 how to perform CPR on the fly. This is a really good thing. Our study shows that only 50% of dispatch centers do this. In conclusion we need to encourage and support dispatch centers to do this lifesaving intervention."
