The new 2016 class video modules were released through April 16th, 2016. The three 2014 modules are being reviewed to assure compliance with the 2015 AHA Guidelines.

ATTENTION!
The Class Videos available for download from this site require the additional information transmitted during the class session and thus should be used with caution if you have not attended the class.

Some of the more important specific points relate to CPR on pediatric patients. The context of these class videos is that of a lone rescuer:  - If, indeed, you have a second, trained rescuer on scene for a pediatric arrest, perform 15 & 2 (compressions & breaths) instead of 30 & 2.  - If the patient is a neonate or early infant, you need to act before the patient becomes non-responsive and not breathing. If the heart rate is above 60, but not above 100, ventilate the patient with gentle breaths until the heart rate rises above 100 beats per minute. Call 911 or have someone call for you. If the heat rate is lower than sixty beats per minute, the patient needs chest compressions, breaths, and an ambulance!

Some 2016 Class Video modules have been released in draft form and are available below. One of the more significant changes is that rescuers in adult cardiac arrest situations are specifically directed to switch to heel chest compressions if they are unable to get down on the floor, if they have a problem with their hands or arms that would prevent performance of Guideline-Compliant Chest Compressions, if they are too tired from attempting manual compressions, or if the victim's chest is just too stiff.

The 2016 Class Video modules are being released and will appear here as they are available.There are some additional documents that will be helpful:
