the american heart association came out today with new guidelines for CPR: pump "as hard as you can . . . as often as you can" and don't worry about stopping for air.
beavis and butt-head, were they here, would have a field day with this bit of news . . . for my part, i guess this means i don't need to update my certification 'cuz frankly i'm already very good at pumping hard and long.
