Abstract

Some clinical studies have suggested that chest compressions before defibrillation improve survival in cardiac arrest because of prolonged ventricular fibrillation (VF; ie, within the circulatory phase). Animal data have also supported this conclusion, and we have previously demonstrated that preshock chest compressions increase the VF median frequency and improve the likelihood of a return of spontaneous circulation in normal swine. We hypothesized that chest compressions before defibrillation in a swine model of acute myocardial ischemia would also increase VF median frequency and improve resuscitation outcome.
