Experiences from May 2010 AHA CPR for Health Care Professionals

(I'm still aching), and removed "CPR is best performed by two operators who swap every 5 minutes." The recommendation is now to change after 5 cycles of 30 compressions and 2 breaths; studies were discussed but not cited saying the 5 minute swap was too long and demonstrably caused exhaustion.

The jury remains out about compressions only, although they may become the standard in lay CPR for adults. Howard C. Berkowitz 14:29, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
