NEW CPR is CAB

NEW to the American Heart Association's CPR recommendations. 
 
C.A.B.

Circulation - first see if victim is breathing "normally", if not quick pulse check. 
                              If  "no reliable pulse" begin compressions, push 2" min over 100/min
                              CALL for HELP and ask someone to get an AED, dial 911
Airway -      Open Airway trained ( no more "LOOK, LISTEN and FEEL")
 
Breathing-   2 Rescue breaths if trained, 30 compressions, 2 minutes or AED/EMS arrives

These significant changes increases the chances of anyone, trained or not in doing SOMETHING that could save a life.  Hands Only recommendations for public rescue simplifies training and increases the chances of CPR delivery in the most crucial timeframe, the first few minutes.  Taking the Compressions first approach only delays the breaths about 18 seconds, far less than previous with the old  "LOOK, LISTEN and FEEL" sequence of old.  Minimal interuptions of high quality CPR, increase blood flow to the heart and thus increases chances of victim survival.
