2021 Heart & Stroke Feedback Requirements

Measure to Improve

Meet the 2021 Heart & Stroke Feedback Requirement with Laerdal’s Resuscitation Training Solutions

The 2015 Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC highlighted research showing the benefits of feedback devices that provide learners with real-time, audio-visual corrective feedback on aspects of CPR. Studies show that feedback devices help students achieve mastery of critical CPR skills and shorten the time from demonstration to competence.

By February 18, 2021, Heart & Stroke will require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device in all Heart & Stroke courses that include skills testing in adult, child or infant CPR, excluding Heartsaver® and Hands-only CPR programs.

This new policy requirement will impact the following courses taught:

  • All First Aid Courses (SFA) (SFAR) (EFA)
  • Basic Life Support (BLS)
  • Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS)
  • ACLS for Experienced Providers (ACLS EP)
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
  • Pediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS)

Recommendation: The use of feedback devices is recommended in community programs, including Heartsaver® and Hands-only CPR programs, but not required.
