CPR Recommendations During COVID-19

While CPR with breaths has been shown to be beneficial when compared to compression-only CPR, during the COVID-19 outbreak, it is currently recommended that no rescue breaths be performed for adult cardiac arrest patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, due to the risk of disease transmission.
 
May an ambu or masked valve bag be used to provide respiratory support during CPR?
Yes. It must be approved by the school medical director and or PAD program director and all nursing staff would need to be trained to use the bag correctly.
