New Guidelines

Based on much research, including from the University of Arizona Resuscitation Research Group, the American Heart Association has changed its CPR guidelines. It now recommends that in the event of witnessed cardiac arrest (you see or hear someone suddenly collapse), chest compressions should be done with minimal interruptions. For people trained in CPR, the ABC (airway, breathing, compression) steps that you probably learned have been changed to CAB (compressions, airway, breaths).

Infants are more likely to have respiratory arrest and mouth-to-mouth CPR is recommended for infants.
