Education

High-quality lifesaving CPR is still required during a pandemic and resuscitation training in some form remains important.

Education

The severe acute respiratory distress syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has shifted the focus from patient safety to healthcare worker safety in (peri-) arrest situations. The increased infection risk for the rescuer modifies treatment approaches - this includes suspected and confirmed COVID-19 cases. On the other hand, delays in initiating resuscitation may cost the lives of those patients in cardiac arrest. High-quality lifesaving CPR is still required during a pandemic and resuscitation training in some form remains important. Education in resuscitation is essential to provide proper treatment for cardiac arrest patients by improving resuscitation knowledge, CPR skills and patient-centred care. The fundamental educational strategies that change the rescuer’s behaviour remain valid, especially during the current pandemic
