CPR Choice founders spent the day learning about the new CPR guidelines at the AHA Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Educational Conference in Birmingham, Alabama. Many topics were discussed from lighthearted learning and teaching principles to the future direction of the AHA with regard to CPR program updates. One very interesting talk delved deep into the science behind CPR. This conference was not one to miss!

AHA New CPR Guidelines! The new CPR guidelines have been released.

“The new rate of chest compressions is 100 to 120 compressions, or pushes, per minute, compared to “at least 100” in previous guidelines, according to the American Heart Association.

For adolescents and adults, a rescuer should push down at least 2 inches, but no more than 2.4 inches on the chest, compared to at least 2 inches in previous guidelines.”
