CPR Refresher Overview
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure where giving chest compressions and/or rescue breathing to a person in cardiac arrest. There are many different methods and proper procedures to follow that's why keeping current on the latest innovations is so important.
In 2010 the American Heart Association released updated guidelines for CPR placing a greater emphasis on compressions to maintain circulation. Throughout the CPR review you will learn how to check for a pulse, open an airway, give a rescue breath and how to deliver a chest compression. As you learn these steps, pay careful attention to the instructions for chest compressions. A key phrase to remember during chest compressions is to push hard and fast. Pushing hard and fast (100 compressions per minute) promotes better circulation by delivering effective compressions.
