Today the new 2010 CPR & ECC guidelines were officially released to update the ones from 2005.
For our profession which usually arrives after resuscitation is already underway, I personally look forward to the stronger emphasis on teaching post-resuscitation care and ventilation strategies including ETco2.

If anyone is interested, here is a DRAFT ppt presentation /overview on the 2010 changes for adult ECC. I have piloted it at about 2.5 hours for the presentation so far.

"Boldness is like a condom. If you depend on it all the time, no matter how good it is, and no matter how good you are, eventually it will break. " -- Walter SLovotsky

"In crisis we do not rise to the occasion, but sink to the level of our training" -- Lt. Col (ret) Grossman

"Personally, I believe that if we write our CE, text books, and curricula at the physician level instead of the kindergarten level, our medics and EMTs will rise to the occasion and meet the higher standard, maybe with some bitching but they will do it. There are plenty of precedents in every day life and other professions for this. The patients will only benefit, as will our own professions and the level of respect I believe we need and want, but maybe don't yet deserve." Steve Cole
