Default Re: New CPR guidelines

DB, your last two posts are brilliant and right on. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. As someone who learned CPR way back in 1966, one thing that hasn't changed is to check for a pulse and a clear airway. Everyone needs to know this procedure, but please learn it from a certified instructor and not from a list of instructions on the internet, or newspaper. In my years I have had opportunity to use it 3 times. Once unsuccessful, the other two just checking the airway and tilting the head back induced breathing and that's all that was needed. Please be careful.
