Understanding the benefits of mechanical chest compression devices
By Arthur Hsieh

Survival from sudden cardiac arrest is zero percent if external chest compressions are not performed. Since the 1950s, when Dr. Peter Safar first described the modern technique of pushing on the chest to create blood flow, researchers have worked to optimize manual compression depth and rate while trainers have trained millions of people worldwide in CPR.

Along with automated external defibrillators and basic airway management, CPR is considered a fundamental component of BLS in cardiac resuscitation.
