The 2010 CPR STEPS just released by The American Heart Association emphasize:
Push harder and faster on the center of the victims chest.
Tilt the victim’s head back and lift the chin to open the airway.
Give mouth-to-mouth rescue breaths.

Hands Only CPR: The AHA endorsed this form of CPR in 2008. The Heart Association still wants untrained lay rescuers to do Hands Only CPR on adult victims who collapse in front of them.
