From EP Monthly:
If you listen to proponents of auto-resuscitation devices, you’d think they’re clearly superior to manual CPR. A review of the literature suggests otherwise.
There are still arguments to be made for mechanical CPR devices – when longer transport times are anticipated, or when there are barriers to applying consistent, high-quality manual compression. But it’s flat-out wrong to assert superior outcomes with mechanical devices; the best evidence yet suggests only equivalency.
