Do you have to do CPR if you are CPR certified?</p><p>Now the opposite question: Is the card all that important? Can you still do CPR if you don&#39;t have a CPR certification?</p><p>When the <a href="https://www.verywell.com/how-to-do-cpr-1298446" data-component="link" data-source="inlineLink" data-type="internalLink" data-ordinal="1">newest CPR guidelines</a> were released by the American Heart Association, a reader asks what happens now?
