Do CPR the right way: 5 things everyone needs to know:

The American Heart Association announced today new recommendations for the way CPR is performed. The small change could make a big difference in the lives of people suffering from cardiac arrest, the organization says.

For nearly 40 years, CPR guidelines have trained people to follow these simple A-B-C instructionsótilt the victim's head back to open the airway, then pinch their nose and do a succession of breaths into their mouth, and finally perform chest compressions.

But now, the AHA says starting with the C of chest compressions will help oxygen-rich blood circulate throughout the body sooner, which is critical for people who have had a heart attack. With this shift, rescuers and responding emergency personnel should now follow a C-A-B processóbegin with chest compression, then move on to address the airway and breaths. This change applies to adults, children, and babies, but does not apply to newborns.

princess in the uk and europe they are well underway in changing them again to take out the mouth to mouth part and just focus of the presses.

its mainly due to people not wanting to touch some strangers mouth with their own, and also recent studies showing the mouth2mouth and presses doesn't make a whole lot of difference compared to presses alone.

They changed some of the guidelines back in '05 - 30 compressions vs 15 at a rate of at least 100/min.  Also, re-cert is every other year vs 5.  I have 2 face masks in my car and one on my key chain, but would probably forget to use them if the situation arose.

They actually started to implement this a few years ago. We were told when I renewed my CPR/AED

I think that is the point.

In the case of an adult who is unconscious and in ventricular fibrillation, the only way to resusitate the victim is the electrical shock which can be obtained by a defibrillator or an AED.

CPR needs to be initiated immediately for an unresponsive/pulseless victim unless a defibrillator or an AED is present


49% success rate vs. 8%


Are you with me so far?

The rate is 100 compressions / minute.

I think I got it at a CPR training class, but I'm sure you can get them at a medical supply store - a store that supplies the medical field.
