This study aimed to investigate the characteristics of chest compressions performed in dental chairs (DCs) with 2 different structural support designs and on the floor. This randomized prospective study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of chest compressions (rate and depth) using a feedback device and a manikin reporting system. The mean anterior chest wall motion measurements captured using the feedback device were significantly increased in the DCs than on the floor, whereas the percentage of net chest compression depths ≥5 cm as measured using the manikin reporting system were significantly decreased in the DCs than on the floor. These findings suggest that cardiopulmonary resuscitation performed in a DC without the use of a supporting stool or stiff backboard is not likely to be effective even if a DC design that incorporates a supportive steel column is utilized.
