Every five years, the American Heart Association releases new CPR guidelines. October 18th, the AHA will be releasing the newest CPR guidelines, and you will have a chance to find out what these changes mean for instructors, healthcare providers, and the general public. Please join us October 21st for a Twitter event to learn the answers to your questions such as how CPR is different for adults, children, and infants, how to become CPR certified, and even how to become a CPR instructor. I hope you’ll be able to make it for this important hour on Twitter.
