Are instructors correctly gauging ventilation competence acquired by course attendees?

Resuscitation 2024 May 11
Achievement of adequate ventilation skills during training courses is mainly based on instructors' perception of attendees' capability to ventilate with correct rate and chest compression:ventilation ratio, while leading to chest raising, as evidence of adequate tidal volume. Accuracy in evaluating ventilation competence was assessed in 20 ACLS provider course attendees, by comparing course instructors' evaluation with measures from a ventilation feedback device. According to course instructors, all candidates acquired adequate ventilation competence. However, data from the feedback device indicated a ventilation not aligned with current guidelines, with higher tidal volume and lower rate (p < 0.01). Deploying quality ventilation during CPR is a skill whose acquisition starts with effective training. Therefore, course instructors' capability to accurately evaluate attendees' ventilation maneuvers is crucial.
