Compression-only CPR found effective

Being a RRCA running coach, I am required to be certified in CPR. It’s also a great skill for anyone to know so they may save a life. The CPR that I had learned from the American Red Cross requires there to be two breaths followed by 30 chest compressions. Now research has determined that compression-only CPR is effective. The research concludes there is no significant difference in survival for patients that received compression-only CPR from bystanders. Hopefully, this finding will lead more bystanders to take action and give life saving CPR with the compression-only method.
