ECC and AHA 2010 updates changed the CPR sequence from A-B-C to C-A-B. Often in the A-B-C method chest compressions were delayed. With the new Compressions – Airway – Breathing method a victim receives compressions faster, providing quicker critical blood flow to the vital organs.
The sequence of steps for conducting CPR using the C-A-B method (detailed further in following chapters)
Per the 2015 updates, you should deliver at least 100 to 120 chest compressions per minute (previous rate was 100 compressions / minute). Recent science indicates that more compressions lead to a higher survival rate. This new update sets an upper limit for the chest compression rate, as excessive compressions and depth can adversely affect a patient’s outcome.
The Hands-Only CPR method is recommended for use on teens or adults that you witness suddenly collapse. This is CPR without the rescue breaths.
