CPR technique scrutinised

The 2 main techniques used for CPR are compared and analysed in a new study due to be published in The Lancet.  Although it has not led to any new guidelines it has provoked discussion in many newspapers! The techniques under discussion relate to those used health professionals not lay people/public.

To find out more the NHS Choices Health News provides a useful summary of the study, the newspaper stories and gives helpful links. Please note the actual Lancet article is not yet available (unless you purchase it) but it will be available in the library soon – let us know if you would like a copy.
