CPR Cycles Episode 1: Interposed Abdominal Compressions

As we’ve conducted RECOVER CPR Certification sessions around the world, we realized that our online courses were very good at emphasizing major concepts and key points to performing evidence-based CPR, while there are more topics we could discuss or explain further.

In an effort to fill some of these gaps and emphasize important practical points to CPR, we will be periodically publishing “CPR Cycles”, delivering nuggets of knowledge regarding RECOVER CPR.

This video reviews the physiology and evidence behind interposed abdominal compressions in dogs and cats and a description of the technique.

In this video, Dr. Dan Fletcher answers:

  • What are “Interposed Abdominal Compressions?”
  • How do interposed abdominal compressions affect coronary perfusion pressure?
  • Do interposed abdominal compressions improve outcomes (ROSC or survival)?
  • Why should interposed abdominal compressions be performed differently on dogs and cats than in humans?
  • How much pressure should be applied for interposed abdominal compressions?

Being a veterinary professional is stressful enough. RECOVER is here to help. Evidence-based protocols and expert training bring competence and confidence to CPR.
