After a review of the available research published over a 5 year period, the American Heart Association released its 2010 CPR Guidelines. As expected, the focus for CPR is on good quality chest compressions. Here are the differences between the 2005 and the 2010 CPR Guidelines:

A-B-C is for babies; now it's C-A-B!
It used to be follow your ABC's: airway, breathing and chest compressions. Now, Compressions come first, only then do you focus on Airway and Breathing. The only exception to the rule will be newborn babies, but everyone else -- whether it's infant CPR, child CPR or adult CPR -- will get chest compressions before you worry about the airway.

Terry is right and wrong. tie off point is key in my eyes. most studies are a 340lb worker with a fall distance of six feet to reach the 12 or 14 foot arrest distance. you would have to tie off about two feet below your feet to reach that distance. even at waist level its about three feet and is your momentem going to be fast enough to strech the lanyard all 31/2 feet i dont know. why dont we start training our selves and our hands in the field instead of listening to the scare tactictics from whomever is scareing us to compliance.
