Several of the activities below are from the
American Red Cross guidelines for instruction in First
Aid/CPR/AED use as dated Spring 2011
CPR, AED and Basic Heart Life saving

note: Assume you find an unconscious person .  The current guidelines for Red Cross state that you check for signs
of life in adults, then go to CPR if they are not breathing.   The current guidelines for American Heart Association
call for immediate CPR without checking for breathing in adults if they are unconscious.  Both groups prefer full
CPR but allow for compression only CPR if you are unable or unwilling to perform full CPR with breaths.
