Abstract

According to this study:

 

* In patients treated by emergency medical services (EMS) providers for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, rates of survival and favorable neurologic status were similar in those who received interrupted chest compressions and those who received continuous chest compressions.

 

* An accompanying editorial suggests that, in light of these findings, the 2015 American Heart Association resuscitation guidelines for EMS providers may need to be revisited.
