“With RQI, you almost become entirely retrained on CPR because now you’re doing it at the right rate and depth — it’s like a whole new ball game.”

“I’ve visibly noticed our ventilation rates decrease and move into very safe zones over time — and this has occurred without prompting or specific focus. RQI has lowered our ventilation rates, and our muscle memory has shifted.”

“It’s the idea that my employees get to touch, see and perform high-quality CPR every three months — regardless of their schedule, when they’re working, or which patients they’re treating. Their ability to maintain mastery and proficiency, for me, is what sells this program.”
