Chest compression CPR already catching on


     Glendale firefighters in Arizona are teaching their residents the new chest compression only CPR we wrote about in a previous post. The Arizona Republic wrote about it today and it appears the turnout is huge. Their class is taught in about 2 hours which is about half the class time of a current full CPR class.

Although the current American Heart Association and American Red Cross CPR curriculum doesn’t recognize this method (yet), we applaud any effort that empowers more people to save lives.

New “Guidelines” here we come (although it could still be a few years away)!
