Comparison of Heart Proportions Compressed by Chest Compressions Between Geriatric and Nongeriatric Patients Using Mathematical Methods and Chest Computed Tomography: A Retrospective Study
ANNALS OF GERIATRIC MEDICINE AND RESEARCH, pp. 130-136, 2018.
Background: Current guidelines recommended that chest compression depths during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) should be at least one-fifth of the external chest anteriorposterior (AP) diameter. The chest AP diameter increases because of dorsal kyphosis, senile emphysema, and poor lung compliance associated with aging. This study aim...More
