When is CPR needed?

How do you preform CPR?

  1. Check the victim for unresponsiveness and breathing.
  2. Once assured the victim is unresponsive call 9-1-1 and return the the victim.
  3. If the victim is still unresponsive, start CPR
  4. Push down in the center of the chest at least 2 inches in 30 compression segments.
  5. The compressions should be hard and fast at at least 100 compressions per minute, faster than 1 per second
  6. For every 30 compressions 2 breaths should be administered into the victim.
  7. Tilt the head back.
  8. Pinch the nose closed.
  9. Cover the victims mouth with yours.
  10. Give 2 breaths at 1 second long each.
  11. Continue with 30 compressions and 2 breaths until help arrives
