By: Rachel Jones
When is CPR needed?
CPR should only be preformed when when someone is not breathing and their heart is not beating.
How do you preform CPR?
- Check the victim for unresponsiveness and breathing.
- Once assured the victim is unresponsive call 9-1-1 and return the the victim.
- If the victim is still unresponsive, start CPR
- Push down in the center of the chest at least 2 inches in 30 compression segments.
- The compressions should be hard and fast at at least 100 compressions per minute, faster than 1 per second
- For every 30 compressions 2 breaths should be administered into the victim.
- Tilt the head back.
- Pinch the nose closed.
- Cover the victims mouth with yours.
- Give 2 breaths at 1 second long each.
- Continue with 30 compressions and 2 breaths until help arrives
