At least a 100/min: In 2010, the aha updated their CPR guidelines. One of the changes was that they recommended a compression rate of at least a 100/min, whether it is an infant, child or adult. Another major changes is the sequence= it is now c-a-b instead of a-b-c. For a synopsis of the new changes, click here: http://firstaid.About.Com/od/cpr/qt/09_2010_cpr_guidelines.Htm.
