High-quality CPR is achieved by:

  • pushing hard (½ the depth of the chest)
  • pushing fast (almost 2 compressions per second)
  • allowing full chest recoil after each compression
  • minimising interruptions in chest compressions
  • avoiding hyperventilation.
The greatest and most urgent priority is to provide both lay and health care professionals with the skills of high-quality CPR that are easily taught, easily remembered and easily implemented so that many more lives may be saved.
