In brief: Basic summery answer

There are 2 main types of CPR and each type has some differences for infants and small children vrs.
Adults. There is basic CPR that does not require any medical related training. Any person can and should get certified in this potentially life saving activity. The 2nd type of CPR involves some medical training involving the use of drugs, tubes into the lungs, and electric shocking of the heart.

In brief: No

The american heart association evaluates all research concerning CPR and recommends the best practices to follow.
These change according to the current best practices. New evidence will likely change what we do, but for now we follow the current recommendations.
