Financial support: This study was funded by a research grant from the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (OMF-110354). Funds from this grant were used for the design and conduct of the study, data collection, data management, and data analysis. The INSPIRE network receives infrastructure funding from the Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine. Funds from this grant were used to support the INSPIRE network administrative coordinator who supported this project. Laerdal Corporation loaned each recruitment site a SimJunior manikin for use in the study and donated CPRCards for the study. No financial compensation or grant funding was received from Laerdal Corporation for conducting this research.
