I attended a renewal CPR + AED course yesterday. Things have changed! Rescue breathing is no longer a part of CPR. The new guidlines, just a year or two old, emphasize compressions and are designed to reduce the hesitation by responders. If you’ve been a bit squeemish about leaning CPR because the idea of mouth to mouth with a stranger, now is the time to get trained and certified. You may save a life.
While you are at it … consider becoming an organ donor.
