2015 CPR guideline changes CPR awareness week!

CPR is as easy as C-A-B!It’s anyone’s guess as to what the new 2015 CPR/ACLS and PALS guidelines will be. (Disclaimer-If anyone tells you otherwise they are fibbers!)

In the past 50 years + of providing CPR courses, the American Heart Association does an exceptional job with their resuscitation research. In 2010/2011 we saw some of the most significant changes ever made to the course materials.

Hands-only-CPR: CALL and PUMP! With the implementation of this information we have seen an increase in bystander participation in an emergency, less fear that someone will make a mistake (because they only have TWO things to do!) Less risk of disease transmission and not to mention the most important part GOOD CONTINUOUS CIRCULATION TO THE BRAIN! The last one is my personal favorite. CPR used to talk more about the heart and the lungs, but we can’t forget how important it is to help the patient’s maintain neurological function if they do survive a cardiac arrest.


Currently we are providing adults with 30:2 compression to breath ratio only changing when we have an advanced airway in place. Children and infants are 30:2 compression to breath ratio with a single rescuer and 15:2 when two or more rescuers are present.

AED CPRI am very excited to hear if we will have an increase in cardiac arrest survival with some of these changes that are already being implemented for the last 5+ years.

We also have Cardio Cerebral Resuscitation or CCR that helps adult cardiac arrest patients maintain better continuous oxygenation and circulation not only to the heart and lungs but also the brain. The studies on CCR point to some promising results and possible increases in cardiac arrest survival. In addition to these patients surviving, many of them are neurologically intact after the event (many more than in previous years/studies on the information)

Hands-only CPR.(The CCR protocol is designed for adult cardiac arrest. Patients less than 8 years of age, drowning patients, drug overdose patients, trauma patients, and respiratory arrest patients are excluded. The CCR protocol focuses on providing the optimal timing for defibrillation, minimizing interruptions to chest compressions, minimizing pauses between chest compressions and defibrillation, early administration of intravenous epinephrine, and minimizing over-ventilation during cardiac arrest.)

Many more changes have been implemented in the courses and we will keep you informed as soon as we know what the new 2015 guidelines will be. Stay tuned!

Student Testimonials

Refresher course. Lots has changed since I last took it. I'm glad I did! Both Nikki & Adam were very knowledgeable and helpful. Good job!
- Librarian, Heartsaver CPR/AED Participant

Well done. I actually prefer Angie’s way of thinking through algorithms better than algorithms themselves.
- Resident Physician, ACLS Provider Recognition Participant

Adam made the class ‘fun’ instead of drawn out and boring. It was helpful hearing ‘true’ stories of when CPR was used. Being a paramedic made him much more credible.
- Nursing student, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant

Good training. Appreciate the teaching and hands-on time.
- Resident Physician, ACLS Provider Recognition participant

You both kept it upbeat and interesting—easy to follow. Very useful—made you think through the complete scenario.
- RN, AMLS Provider participant

Way to go, Adam! Easy and fun!
- RN, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant

Thanks for making this meaningful.

Great course!
- RN, PALS Provider Recognition participant

Great course—to the point—easy to understand.
- Nursing Student, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant

Very friendly—cooperative—great customer service!
- RN, BLS for Healthcare Providers participant

Speaker was very animated which made a more relaxed atmosphere that was conducive to learning.
- Heartsaver CPR/AED participant

Instructors had an easy and understandable style, lots of reviewing which was helpful. And she was friendly and personable.
- PA, ECG Course Participant

Wendy explained cpr clearly and made the course easy to remember.
