Is NCLEX up to date with changes in the American Heart Asso's guidelines for changes in CPR? Or do their test questions in the computer just sit there in the database?
They issued changes in winter of 2005. I just want to know if those changes have been reflected in their test questions...so a test taker would know which answer to pick...
e.g. summary as follows..
The 5 major changes in the 2005 guidelines
• Emphasis on, and recommendations
to improve, delivery of effective chest
• A single compression-to-ventilation
ratio for all single rescuers for all victims
• Recommendation that each rescue
breath be given over 1 second and should
produce visible chest rise
• A new recommendation that single shocks,
followed by immediate CPR, be used to
attempt defibrillation for VF cardiac arrest.
Rhythm checks should be performed every
• Endorsement of the 2003 ILCOR
recommendation for use of AEDs in
children 1 to 8 years old (and older); use a
child dose-reduction system if available.
