Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
In this cluster randomized crossover trial, there are situations where age and gender are not known prior to the treatment being administered. These missing data account for the discrepancy between the enrollment number in the protocol section (23,711) and those in the participant flow module (23,687).

Reporting Groups
  Description
Standard CPR

American Heart Association (AHA)recommended cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) of 30 compressions with brief pause for 2 ventilations

Standard CPR: 30:2 CPR consists of 3 cycles of standard CPR with each cycle consisting of 30 chest compressions with a pause for 2 ventilations at a compression:ventilation ratio of 30:2. CCC consists of a series of three cycles of continuous chest compressions without pauses for ventilation. In either group, each cycle will be followed by rhythm analysis until three cycles are completed or restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), whichever occurs first.

Continuous Chest Compressions

Continuous compression CPR

Continuous chest compressions: Continuous chest compressions during the first 6 minutes of the resuscitation.
