Many of us learned the ABCs of CPR.
- A- Airway
- B- Breathing
- C- Circulation
Maybe you knew this but I did not.
As of 2010, the American Heart Association chose to focus CPR on reducing interruptions to compressions, and has changed the order in its guidelines to Circulation, Airway, Breathing (CAB).
If you see someone in need of CPR the new guidelines are get the heart pumping by pressing on it first.
