I remember an article saying that compressions are as vital or even more important than mouth to mouth. Forcing the blood to circulate thru the heart by compression is so very vital they said. They say compress not 5 times then mouth to mouth, but more like compress the chest 10-15 times...then mouth to mouth.

In other words, they have revised the procedure from that of decades ago (if I'm not mistaken).

Yes, the procedures and recommendations are now totally different. Some recommend skipping mouth-to-mouth entirely.

We can banter about what we thing is the proper procedure here on DC all we want. The fact is, unless we have current training, we don't really know how to do it right. We won't be following, as they say in the professional world, best practice.

With something that can save a person's life, it is essential to use the best information we can get, and that is obtained through training.

If your old training kicks in during an emergency, you are still doing the right thing. Hands Only is being taught because of the belief that more people will offer assist if they don't need to do mouth-to-mouth. I am trained to use mouth-to-mouth, first giving 30 chest compressions and then a rescue breath with an Ambubag or with a valve I carry on my keychain that protects both of us from bodily fluids.

There are many states where the Good Samaritan Act is in place (not Michigan unless you are a healthcare provider). Everyone should learn the "Hands Only CPR", even if only for your own family's safety.

We have the GSA here in Mass. Without it, Poo would never have stopped when he saw a five car accident. He was on his way home from work. Because of his quick actions, no lives were lost that day. And he has one of two letters from the White House in his puff file. The other was for being the first responder at a train wreck. Again no lives lost, but some real life threatening injuries. He made his then fiancé take CPR when he was just dating her. And that is the exact reason he used against her balking. He even threatened to stop dating her and break off the engagement.
