Fluffy said:Was there any final decision on how to find the commpression point on an adult? Via the side - accross the chest (First Responder) or up the stomach past the solar plexus (sp) (Red Cross). This is a point I'd like to have final clarification on.
splazzatch said:I teach from the Red Cross to place your ring finger in the notch above the solar plexus and then put your middle and index finger down and place your other palm next to the index finger...that is the compression point.
jdinca said:Two fingers above the notch at the bottom of the sternum (xiphoid process). I believe that is changing, has been changed to the nipple line, which would eliminate some of the confusion.
