Predictors of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator skill retention



Predictors of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillator skill retention



American Heart Journal 150(5): 927-932



Background Few data exist regarding the retention of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) skills over time in relationship to characteristics of lay volunteer responders, training, or risk of exposure to victims. The purpose of this study was to describe the characteristics associated with adequate CPR and AED skill retention.Methods and Results Skill retention was tested 3 to 18 months (mean 6.9 +/- 3.5 months) after initial training.
