The long awaited Guidelines 2010 for CPR and Emergency Cardiac Care were published in a supplement to the November 2, 2010 issue of the journal Circulation. The American Heart Association (AHA) has released a 32-page synopsis of the new guidelines, available on their Web site in 12 languages. As with past revisions, implementation awaits publication of educational materials and updating of instructors. You can get a jump on the changes by reading either of these publications, or wait until Spring 2011 when courses will officially roll out the new material.
