New CPR / ACLS guidelines

Yup.. they're out. Does it make me an EMS geek for having actually looked forward to them coming out?

My big happiness is more of semantics rather than of sciene--- finally getting rid of ABC and making it CAB. Call it a pet peeve of mine, but ever since EMT class, I HATED saying ABCs, and I AWAYS checked for a pulse before breathing. It might just be me, but hey, if they don't have a pulse, whatever respirations may or may not exist don't really mean crap.

Now, just to find out when my company will implement these into protocols... granted it's not like we run on many codes doing transfers, but it happens.
