Just wondering if anyone has seen this: http://www.resus.org.uk/pages/guidesum.pdf
Guidelines were updated last month, and i found out through my mentor who teaches at university BLS/ILS. Got to say- I was always taught to do continuous compressions anyway. I doubt it'd make a difference, but someone pointed out theres a lesser emphasis on intubation during arrests, and no routine doses of atropine show for interesting evidence!

My last placement went on and on about atropine being used in arrests and I never saw it used once.
I'm interested to know why you were always taught to do continuous compressions? I had my BLS update last week and they were still teaching us 30-2?

it was 30/2, it still is. It was 100/10 simultaneously if an airway had been secured.
