Introduction: Survival from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) relies on prompt defibrillation and effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The effect of SCA patient gender has been assessed, but there has been little research into the effect of rescuer gender. An update to the resuscitation guidelines recommends lay-rescuers perform chest compression (CC) only CPR. This study was conducted to assess quality of CCs performed by male and female lay-rescuers.
