Nobody can deny that American Heart Association has changed their stance on CPR. There is no more excuses for the interruption of CPR. Paramedics have a tendency to snub CPR because they are American Heart Association ACLS Certification approved. The EMS community has changed to accommodate the need for excellent CPR.
The staff of pediatric hospitals have been very active in integrating Pediatric Advanced Life Support into their everyday resuscitation protocols. Great Compressions has shown to be really effective in patients of all ages. The rate of compressions has changed as well, so if you have not been updated, please see your CPR instructor.
