The decision to eliminate the stand-alone Heartsaver CPR Course was based on science in the 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC, which indicates that the chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest is greater when high-quality CPR includes use of an AED. Science also shows that, with AEDs becoming more and more widely available in public and workplace settings, there is an increased need to educate all students on how to use an AED. Based on the science, all AHA adult and child CPR courses now will include AED instruction.
