Emergency Cardiovascular Care- 2010 Update

New Guidelines Introduced in 2010 for CPR & Emergency

Cardiovascular Care sequence.

According to 2010 guidelines, you should call 911 after checking victim for response (absence of breathing)  and use CAB ( Chest Compressions, Airway, and Breathing), rather then ABC. This is big change in new guidelines as lay rescuers will initiate chest compressions quicker without opening victims airway first.

-Compression rate should be at least 100/min

-Compression depth of 2 inches for adults and one third of front/rear diameter of the chest in infants and children.

Interruptions in chest compressions should be minimized, allowing complete chest recoil after each compression.
