ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of chest compression according to the patient body weight and the rescuer's weight when performing chest compression on a cardiac arrest patient that occurred on a home bed. From January 07 to January 19, 2023, 36 paramedic students from N and S universities who completed the KBLS provider curriculum of the Korea Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Association were measured at the subject's knee position, the depth of the mattress being pressed by the weight of the manikin, and the depth of the mattress being pressed by the weight of the manikin were measured during continuous chest compression for 2 minutes. As a result of the study, if a child's cardiac arrest is found at home, the patient is moved to the floor to proceed with chest compression, and the first witness to find an adult cardiac arrest is recommended to proceed on the bed rather than force the patient under the bed to proceed with chest compression.
