"Actual applications for clinical practice
  • The recommended chest compression point can be ineffective to generate enough outflow because the Area of Maximum Compression is not on the Left Ventricle but either on the Aortic Valve or the Ascending tract of the Aorta
  • Emergency providers can adjust the compression point based on EtCO2 values.
  • If, despite technically correct chest compressions, the EtCO2 remains below 10, try to adjust the compression point.
  • In those cases, the Optimal Compression Point is usually positioned caudally to the recommended one on the lower third of the sternum"
