    With the release of new CPR guidelines, does it also apply to NCLEX also? Instead of ABC,its CAB now or are we gonna stick to the old school?I don't want to get confused coz I'm gonna take my exam this week.

    "Encourage Hands-Only (compression only) CPR for the untrained lay rescuer. Hands-Only CPR is easier to perform by those with no training and can be more readily guided by dispatchers over the telephone. "
    As per this article in the Nursing News section of AllNurses:


    2010 American Heart Associate Guidelines for ECC and CPR - Nursing for Nurses

    This is what I was told when I renewed my CPR in June for work.

    I believe those guidelines were issued for laypeople. You are a trained healthcare worker - there's a difference.


    Doubt they will change the exam in the next few days, regardless.

    ahh yes, so we should still follow our ABC's then regardless. being a student I always wonder if i see a patient in cardiac arrest, I know i would push the code blue button... im not sure if i would start CPR ?... or at least i would hesistate to... (something I always think about)

    don't worry about the nclex changes. i heard in my feuer review audio cds that nclex is a couple of years behind with the updates.

    good luck with the exam by the way.

    Actually, they are changing CPR for BLS as well. The issue of Circulation is out, the changes are listed. Basically, it's CAB for BLS as well...Compression, then Airway, then Breathing. I think it will streamline things a bit. BLS will also still be on the only component that shows BVM, etc.

    I think the chances of you getting even one question about how to do CPR on the NCLEX are slim-to-none. You still need to know what to do, of course, but I wouldn't lose any sleep about this being on boards.

    Good luck!
