New CPR method: 100 compressions per minutePosted: April 8, 2010
Mayo Clinic produces video about the technique.
A video titled Continuous Chest Compression CPR – Mayo Clinic Presentation explains the new CPR method. The idea is based on several issues. 1 is keeping blood pressure up to force blood all ready enriched with oxygen into the brain. 2 is the idea that most people did not like performing the mouth to mouth part of the compressions.
There is a companion website Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR): First aid. The website explains if you are confident and trained mouth to mouth is still a good idea, but the ratios should be 30 compressions to two breaths.
