Table 2 Comparison of no flow ratio (NFR) between first responders and resuscitation team during unaccounced simulated cardiac arrest (n = 13)

From: In-hospital resuscitation evaluated by in situ simulation: a prospective simulation study

  First responders Resuscitation team  
   Percentiles   Percentiles  
  Median 25 75 Median 25 75 p-value
NFR (%) 39 32 46 25 19 29 p < 0.001†
NFR_adj (%) 26 22 38 13 11 17 p < 0.001†
  1. NFR: no flow ratio; percentage of the of the time during resuscitation without chest compressions and spontaneous circulation.
  2. NFRadj: no flow ratio_adjusted; percentage of the of the time during resuscitation without chest compressions and spontaneous circulation adjusted by subtraction of time allowed for rhythm and pulse check and defibrillation (when appropriate).
  3. † Mann-Whitney test
