Act 7 of 2019 has just taken effect, requiring the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) to develop and provide curriculum for hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to schools, now part of required high school instruction.

Larissa Bedrick, communications director for the American Health Association, and Steve Poffenberger, director of quality and staff development for Geisinger EMS join the podcast to discuss the science behind no-breath, hands-only CPR, traditional CPR training and certification, and how this new no-breath method fits into life-saving tactics.
