Both organizations are working hard to get the word out on the new guidelines for CPR.
From a USA today article, “American Heart Association revises CPR guidelines“:
“The new guidelines dictate that a bystander should compress the victim’s chest 100 times a minute to a depth of about 2 inches. That keeps blood and oxygen flowing to the brain, sustaining it until help arrives. Stopping for rescue breaths can interrupt blood flow, AHA’s Sayre says.”
