http://handsonlycpr.eisenberginc.com/The American Heart Association (AHA) has releasednew guidelines on cardiopulmonary resuscitation for adults who unexpectedly stop breathing,collapse, and are unresponsive. It is no longer necessary to administer mouth to mouth, butinstead, fast chest compressions are critical for the individual’s survival. The best thing you cando for an adult that has unexpectedly collapsed is call 911 and immediately start pushing hardand fast on the person’s chest until help arrives.Source: http://handsonlycpr.eisenberginc.com/New, Simpler CPR GuidelinesPosted by jreiswig on March 16, 2006 @ 11:02 amCategories: Biomedical NewsIn November 2005, the American Heart Association issued new cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR) guidelines [published in Circulation 112(24 Suppl), December 13, 2005] which aresimpler than the previous guidelines.
