Compressions compressions compressions

The new recommendations are out for CPR from the American Heart Association. They advise compressions only, 100 per minute. It is more important to perfuse than ventilate. My new favorite blogger, Life in the Fast lane has posted a nice summary. Or check out the AHA directly. And always be ready.

  1. I was out of the country when the new guidelines came out, but isn’t that recommendation just for the lay rescuer? I don’t think that healthcare provider CPR changed all that much.
