Description This booklet is meant to accompany the American Heart Association's training course for basic life support (BLS). The booklet covers CPR for infants, adults and children; use of an automated external defibrillator (AED); rescue breathing; and relief of choking. The Association's 2010 guidelines are followed; these new guidelines give priority to chest compressions rather than clearing the airway and de-emphasize checking for a pulse.
