What is the CAT?

Quotation from Catestonline:

The CAT is a short, simple and validated assessment, which measures the impact of COPD on a patient’s life in an objective manner1.

The CAT was developed to facilitate a meaningful discussion between healthcare professionals and patients and provide a reliable measure of the impact of COPD on a patient’s life. It’s hoped that, as a result of this enhanced communication, the CAT will improve the management of COPD and patients’ quality of life.

• A compression rate of at least 100/min (a change from “approximately” 100/min)

• A compression depth of at least 2 inches (5 cm) in adults and a compression depth of at least one third of the anterior- posterior diameter of the chest in infants and children (approximately 1.5 inches [4 cm] in infants and 2 inches [5 cm] in children). Note that the range of 11?2 to 2 inches is no longer used for adults, and the absolute depth specified for children and infants is deeper than in previous versions of the AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC.
