Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: the flexed two-finger chest compression technique could provide adequate compression depth without increasing the hand-off time during single-rescuer infant cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Reviewers’ commentary: the flexed two-finger chest compression technique seems to improve the compression depth of the conventional two-finger technique, but not its frequency or degree of recoil. Although it is an alternative in resuscitation situations with a single resuscitator, studies should be extended before replacing the currently used two-finger technique for infant in action protocols.
