Answer

Answer

Several large randomized controlled and prospective cohort trials, as well as one meta-analysis, demonstrated that bystander-performed COCPR leads to improved survival in adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, in comparison with standard CPR. [3, 4, 5] Differences between these results may be attributable to a subgroup of younger patients arresting from noncardiac causes, who clearly demonstrate better outcomes with conventional CPR.
