This thesis investigated the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) provided by St John Ambulance Western Australia (SJA-WA) paramedics to victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Perth, Western Australia. Chest compression depth was identified as a key metric that required optimisation. The study also found a significant and inverse association between chest compression fraction and return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). A paramedic survey identified reasons for the underutilisation of the Q-CPR feedback device in clinical practice.
