The latest CPR guidelines are the 2015 UK and European Resusciation Council guidelines. The next scheduled update will not be until October 2020.
CPR is an easy skill to learn. It offers the lay rescuer the ability to help to save a life by artificially pumping oxygen rich blood about the body. Pushing down on the chest forces blood through the heart. CPR is only needed when you identify that the patient is not breathing. The heart stops for various reasons including, heart disease, electric shock, illness and drowning.
