If a bystander is not trained in CPR, then the bystander
should provide hands-only CPR (Class IIa). The rescuer
should continue hands-only CPR until an automated external

providers take over care of the victim.
? If a bystander was previously trained in CPR and is

with minimal interruptions in chest compressions, then the
bystander should provide either conventional CPR using a
30:2 compression-to-ventilation ratio (Class IIa) or handsonly
CPR (Class IIa). The rescuer should continue CPR

ready for use or EMS providers take over care of the
victim.

I doubt it...to be honest with you, bystanders, in my area, seem to "pitch in" quite nicely.  They save the lives by providing CPR quickly...more than I save lives in a delayed fashion in the hospital.

Push on that chest!!

I wish they did more in my area. Way too many bystanders who do nothing but watch and make dozens of 911 calls.
