What are the new changes in CPR?

Other changes to CPR guidelines include two new opioid-associated emergency algorithms for first responders and lay rescuers to respond to cardiac arrests caused by overdoses, and new data on pediatric CPR and resuscitation of pregnant patients.

When was CPR changed?

The 2010 CPR Guidelines rearranged the order of CPR steps. Now, instead of A-B-C, which stands for airway and breathing first followed by chest compressions, the American Heart Association wants rescuers to practice C-A-B: chest compressions first, then airway and breathing. Some have asked, why did CPR change?

What is the new CPR guideline?

The new guidelines do not have any major changes, but here are some of the basics: No more than 120 compressions per minute with a minimum of 100. Chest compressions for adults should be no more than 2.4 inches and at least 2 inches. 911 Operators should be trained to help bystanders check for breathing & recognize cardiac arrest.

How does CPR change?

CPR works on the principal that compression on the sternum causes a change in the pressure in the chest cavity which makes blood flow. There is a change in pressure in the Venae Cava, the Aorta, and the pulmonary vasculature which moves blood. The blood flow will allow for cerebral perfusion, thus keeping the brain alive.
