Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An objective and subjective assessment of performance of CPR by 38 foundation year 1 doctors in a major teaching hospital. The study clearly demonstrated that males are more effective than females, BMI has a significant effect on chest compression depth and that females, especially those with a BMI of <24 are more effective at CPR when using a 15:2 rather than a 30:2 ratio of chest compressions to ventilations.
