    Recognition, CPR, Defibrillation, Advanced Life Support, and Post Arrest Care are part of the Adult Chain of Survival.  What is the rational for not including 'Ventilation'?

      The most recent AHA guidelines emphasize chest compressions of over the need for ventilation because it has a much greater effect on mortality.
