Welcome to the March / April issue of the American EHS / American CPR monthly Affiliate Instructor Newsletter!

March / April 2004


Changes in CPR method?
Although the 911 dispatcher instructions for CPR in 12 major cities no longer includes mouth-to-mouth instructions for the first 4 minutes, American EHS / American CPR classroom guidelines for CPR certification have not changed. Students will be taught the current American EHS / American CPR curriculum which is consistent with 2000 ECC Guidelines.

USA Today reports that 12 cities, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta have simplified 911 dispatcher instructions and that 2 dozen more cities are interested.

The ECC 2000 guidelines already support dispatcher assisted compressions-only CPR for non-professionals and they may be issuing new guidelines in 2005. It is simply a protocol that recommends that dispatchers talk callers through chest compression, not mouth to mouth and chest compression for the first 4 minutes of an emergency call.

The current ECC guidelines recommend both compression and rescue breathing for people assisting a cardiac arrest victim.

There is mounting evidence that trying to convey telephone instructions to non-CPR certified lay persons on how to do mouth-to-mouth during an emergency wastes valuable time and may actually fuel their reluctance to perform CPR. This is especially true when consideration is given to the fact that many victims may vomit during CPR. 

Until the ECC issues its new guidelines in 2005, all students will be taught both mouth-to-mouth and chest compressions in order to be certified in CPR.

Why are we telling you all this? Questions come up during classes... you will almost surely be asked something like "I heard that you are not supposed to give mouth to mouth anymore...why are you teaching us to do it?" We want you to be prepared to give a thorough, educated answer... in a nutshell: EMS telephone instructions to a non-CPR certified person will not include rescue breaths for the first 4 minutes in some areas (check your local EMS protocols).. CPR guidelines for all rescuers may change in 2005.
