Cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR) is the key to success for high-quality early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and its success in the restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), therefore, monitoring the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and early identification ROSC is very important. Now there is no an easy, non-invasive and real-time method to monitor the quality of CPR. In this study the investigators hypothesis the pulse oximeter waveform can real-time monitor the quality of CPR ,and feedback the quality of CPR to the physicians.
