The American Heart Association (AHA) has released new guidelines and best practices for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency cardiovascular care (ECC). These guidelines have been updated to improve rescue time and make the process easier.
Although the changes from the 2010 guidelines are, for the most part, minimal, they emphasize such important things as cell phone use in an emergency, clarified rates of compression during CPR, etc.
Over the next months, we will work diligently to update materials, training courses, and products to reflect these changes so that we can continue being a comprehensive, reliable resource for your safety needs.
