In brief: Yes

The guidelines did recently change.
In 2010 the american college of cardiology and american heart association released guidelines that emphasized two important points: 1) compression only CPR is effective and acceptable. (no mouth to mouth required) 2) push hard and push fast- compressions should be hard, fast (100/minute) and uninterrupted for best effect.
