Asynchronous and other alternative methods of ventilation during CPR.


Current standards for ventilation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation are not supported by recent and ongoing investigation. This is particularly true in victims with an unprotected airway. Currently used flow rates and inspiratory times predispose to gastric insufflation and its complications. Potential changes and corrections that may benefit the victim of cardiac arrest are reviewed.
