# What is a chest compression fraction?

## What is a chest compression fraction?

Chest compression fraction (CCF) is the cumulative time spent providing chest compressions divided by the total time taken for the entire resuscitation. Targeting a CCF of at least 60% is intended to limit interruptions in compressions and maximize coronary perfusion during resuscitation.

**What is the compressor rate for CPR?**

Chest compressions are central to the performance of CPR, yet very few data exist on how well rescuers perform this important therapy. Resuscitation guidelines published in the United States and Europe recommend that chest compressions be performed at a rate of 100 compressions per minute (cpm).

**How deep should compressions be on a child?**

Compressions should be done at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute at a depth of about 1.5 inches for infants, about 2 inches for children and at least 2 inches but no greater than 2.4 inches for adolescents. If rescuers are unwilling or unable to deliver breaths, they should perform compression-only CPR.

### What is the minimum passing score for chest compression fraction?

Chest Compression Fraction. The AHA’s 2013 CPR Consensus Statement called for a compression fraction of at least 80 percent; the 2015 Guidelines lowered that figure to at least 60 percent. It’s critical to note that in a hospital setting, the consensus is that compression fraction should be at least 80 percent.

**How do you increase chest compression fraction?**

An increase in chest compression fraction can be achieved by minimizing pauses in chest compressions. The optimal goal for chest compression fraction has not been defined.

**What is new CPR guidelines?**

2015 New CPR Guidelines

- No more than 120 compressions per minute with a minimum of 100.
- Chest compressions for adults should be no more than 2.4 inches and at least 2 inches.
- 911 Operators should be trained to help bystanders check for breathing & recognize cardiac arrest.

#### What is high-performance CPR?

High-performance cardiopulmonary resuscitation (HP-CPR) involves performing compressions at the proper depth and rate, while making sure to not lean on the chest and keeping interruptions to a minimum.

**What are the new standards for CPR?**

No more than 120 compressions per minute with a minimum of 100. Chest compressions for adults should be no more than 2.4 inches and at least 2 inches. 911 Operators should be trained to help bystanders check for breathing & recognize cardiac arrest.

**What should CCF be during CPR?**

Purpose: According to guideline recommendations, chest compressions (CC) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) should be performed at a rate of 100 – 120 per minute, with a CC fraction (CCF) of ≥80%.

## What is the ratio for 2 person CPR?

30 compressions to 2 breaths

Two-person CPR for the adult victim will be 30 compressions to 2 breaths. Two-person CPR ratio for the child and infant will be 15 compressions to 2 breaths.
