CPR level “B”
CPR level “B” is seemingly being melded into CPR level “A”. As the international liaison committee on resuscitation (ILCOR) is promoting a simpler and more straight forward method of providing CPR it has slowly been removing the separation between CPR “A” and CPR “B”. The difference between the two levels of CPR is that level “A” teaches rescues on adult victims only and level “B” teaches CPR for adults and child victims. However, the procedure for adult CPR is almost identical to that of child CPR. Because of this similarity between the two programs, CPR level “B” is slowly being the “forgotten” level of CPR.
