More cardiac arrest victims will survive if emergency medical dispatchers give CPR instructions over the phone and if infants and children receive rescue breaths in addition to chest compressions, according to updated CPR guidelines released Tuesday by the American Heart Association. "The 2017 Focused Updates validate what we already know about performing CPR and offer a scientific basis for optimizing CPR quality to save more lives," said Dr. Karl Kern, chair of the Association's Emergency Cardiovascular Care Committee and professor of medicine at the UA College of Medicine – Tucson.
