Abstract

In our study, basal metabolic rate, FFM, trunk muscle mass, and left and right arm muscle mass were positively correlated with compression depth. Moreover, an arm muscle mass rise of 1 kg caused a rise of compression depth param-eter of 7.3 mm, while when chest compression was performed by females, a fall of compression depth of 3.3 mm was seen.
