Abstract: Background: High quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is crucial in out-of-hospital or in-hospital cardiac arrests, but the quality of chest compressions varies in different rescuers. Body mass index (BMI) had an effect on chest compression performance, especially the compression depth.
Objectives: To evaluate the effect of BMI on chest compression performance through simulation training among student nurses in Hong Kong.
