Abstract

Abstract Introduction: According to the latest guidelines of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the American Heart Association, advises 6 centimeters for maximum chest compression in CPR; but unfortunately, so far has not mentioned any explanatory guidelines to factors affecting the amount of chest compression. Therefore, this study was aimed at assessing factors affecting the chest compression cardiopulmonary resuscitation from the perspective of personnel of pre-hospital emergency of central hub in Iran. Methodology: The present study is descriptive analytical conducted randomly among 306 individuals of emergency service personnel in central hub of Iran. Data were collected by self-made questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS, with descriptive statistics (frequency, mean, standard deviation). Results: 306 individuals participated in the study and mean age was calculated as 34.75 +/- 3.45. According to personnel of the emergency service, chest compression in CPR depends on rib curve, skeletal abnormality of chest, injured weight, elasticity of chest and stability of chest and the most influential factor on chest compression was (0.99.34) rib curve. Conclusion: Results of this study show that chest compression is not the same among all individuals and not consistent with instructions of American Heart Association. It is possible that chest compression in CPR is more than 6 centimeters or less than 5 centimeters.
