Did anybody else see that they've changed CPR again? For adults now its chest compressions to "Staying Alive" for kids its still mouth to mouth breaths & compressions. IMO its bc ppl are much more likely to give mouth to mouth to a child than an adult. What do you think? Would you give an adult you don't know CPR w/out a mask? What about a child?
For me, I wouldn't give CPR to an adult w/out a mask but would w/out hesitation for a child.

I just took CPR last month and they told us that it is 30 compressions and 2 breaths (even for adults). I always carry a mask with me on my key chain just in case. However, if the need of cpr did arise for adult or child, I would do cpr without a mask if I didn't have one.
