American Heart Association CPR Throwdown
The AHA CPR Throwdown is a live challenge event where participants practice resuscitation skills in scenarios that are applicable to their clinical environment. The objective is for teams to demonstrate high-performance resuscitation with the application of concepts outlined in the AHA Consensus Statement; CPR Quality: Improving Cardiac Resuscitation Outcomes Both Inside and Outside of the Hospital.
The contest uses feedback technology and debriefing from authors of the Statement to help participants improve their life-saving resuscitation skills.
