Did You Know?
No More Pulse Checks
Ever wonder what happened to doing pulse checks during CPR? In 2004, the major first aid and CPR providers throughout North America removed that step from the CPR process. Many people got confused, didn’t know where to look, and were unsure when they performed pulse checks in real life. All that time wasted with confusion and contemplation took valuable time away from chest compressions. Furthermore, the chances of you finding a pulse if the person is not breathing is incredibly low. A healthcare provider should not take more than 10 seconds in checking for a pulse before starting CPR.
