Did You Know?
CPR and AED
Standards in CPR and AED change every 4 or 5 years based on recommendations by large research committees such as ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation). St Mark James and all of the major first aid and CPR providers changed the standards in first aid and CPR in 2010 with the Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines.
Basic Life Support was created by the American Heart Association to save lives after a person becomes a victim of cardiac arrest. The BLS includes (1) recognition of SCA or sudden cardiac arrest, (2) activation of the emergency response system, (3) early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and (4) rapid defibrillation with an automated external defibrillator.
