Description

Developed as a public service by leading physicians and educators in emergency care at the University of Washington and King County EMS, the CPR & Choking application provides instant information on how to perform CPR and how to aid a choking victim. These are short video demonstrations (about 1 minute) and are compatible with the latest recommendations from the major international resuscitation organizationss including the American Heart Association and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).

This application is not a substitute for proper training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation or choking aid but it is very useful for a quick review. We urge everyone to receive formal instruction in CPR and how to assist a choking victimbeing trained may help you save a life. More information on CPR and choking aid may be found at learncpr.org.

The videos were produced with the assistance of the University of Washington, the Life Sciences Discovery Fund, the Medic One Foundation, King County Emergency Medical Services, the Seattle Fire Department, and the Laerdal Foundation for Acute Medicine. They, like us are convinced that teaching these life saving techniques to as many people as possible will save lives.

Go ahead. Download the app, share it with your friends, help people get trained.

This version is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch. If you have an iPad, look for CPR & Choking for iPad in the iPad section of the storeit adds AED videos!

What's New in Version 1.2.0

New CPR videos that incorporate the latest guidelines issued by the American Heart Association (Oct 2010). The most prominent change is from A-B-C (airway, breathing, chest compressions) to C-A-B (chest compressions first, then airway and breathing).

From the AHA Executive Summary (http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/122/18_suppl_3/S640): "The newest development in the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC is a change in the basic life support (BLS) sequence of steps from "A-B-C" (Airway, Breathing, Chest compressions) to "C-A-B" (Chest compressions, Airway, Breathing) for adults and pediatric patients (children and infants, excluding newly borns). Although the experts agreed that it is important to reduce time to first chest compressions, they were aware that a change in something as established as the A-B-C sequence would require re-education of everyone who has ever learned CPR."

Be sure to maintain proper training as there are other important changes to the guidelines in addition to C-A-B.
