Significant new changes in CPR

The science was examined, discussions were held, and according the American Heart Association’s experts, there is a better way to perform CPR.

Every five years guidelines for performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation are reviewed to ensure that they embrace the latest scientific evidence. The recently released “2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR” significantly change the way CPR is performed. The most dramatic change: updated compression-to-ventilation ratios.

While a 15:2 ratio has been taught in the past, a 30:2 ratio is now recommended.
“This new ratio will allow rescuers to focus on delivery of effective chest compressions and minimize interruptions to the compressions,” said Carolina Miranda, director of healthy and safety for the Palo Alto Area American Red Cross (PAARC). “In addition, this new ratio will apply to adults, children and infants – making it easier for the lay rescuer to learn, remember and perform CPR.”

The American Red Cross is currently revising its First Aid and CPR classes to include these new recommendations and will introduce updated courses in March.

Robert Baden-Powell,
Founder of the World Scout Movement,
Chief Scout of the World

The portrait of Baden-Powell at the top of this page is from the 1929 painting by David Jagger. It was presented to B-P on August 6, 1929 at the III World Jamboree at Arrowe Park, Birkenhead,England. This was known as the "Coming of Age Jamboree" as it marked the 21st anniversary of Scouting. The portrait was Baden-Powell's favorite. The original is at Baden-Powell House in London and a copy is displayed in the conference room at World Headquarters (WOSM) in Geneva, Switzerland.
