Although BLS was excluded from 2019 revisions, its’ significance to the chain of survival and relevance to DA-CPR provisions warrants review. In Part 3, we recall AHA’s accepted steps and techniques for adult, child and infant Basic Life Support (BLS).
No need to lose sleep over the 2019 AHA guideline changes, which can’t compare to the 2015 phase out of the long-taught resuscitation method, ‘A-B-C’, and adoption of ‘C-A-B’. 2019 revisions aren’t going to rock the boat in the same way. Instead, they recommend first aid interventions not previously taught in certification courses. Also, emergency dispatcher instruction and guidance to 9-1-1 callers is outlined, with the intent of improving CPR quality and effectiveness.

First thing’s first: Which guidelines were updated? Which ones matter to health & safety professionals in industry? And what’s OSHA got to say about it?
