Sternal Fracturing: A Comparison of Fracture Patterns Caused by Sternal Compression and Blunt Force Trauma
Pavlik, Miah A.
MetadataShow full item record
The sternum primarily fractures transversely across the bone. The present study utilized 24 sterna, 9 of which were fractured, in order to determine the fracture pattern caused by CPR and to determine the characteristics that increase the risk of fracturing during CPR. The fracture pattern was then compared to the fracture pattern of a woman who sustained perimortem fracture to the sternum caused by blunt force trauma.
