CPR/ Rescue breathing/ Choking

Adults, kids and infants

CPR on adults

CPR on adults takes a lot of strength. First you wanna check and see if they will respond. If not, lay them on there back and check to see if they are breathing but listening and feeling. for compressions you wanna push on the lower part of their sternum with 2 hands. Do 30 compressions 100 per minute 2 inches deep and then do two rescue breaths.

CPR on children and infants

CPR on children is the same as you would on adults but the compressions need to be a little softer and 1 1/2 inches deep with one hand. The rescue breaths don't need to be as strong either. On infants its little different, you do the same things but way softer and more gentle. With compressions you use 2 or 3 finger, press in between and just below the nipples about 1 inch deep. For rescue breath you have to be very gentle and do those after compressions.

Rescue Breaths

In CPR you wanna give someone two rescue breaths after compressions if they are not breathing. To check if someone is not breathing listen for there breath and feel there chest move up and down. If they are not breathing then you can start your rescue breaths. For adults tilt there head back, pinch their nose and cover there mouth with yours and breathe. There chest should move up and down, if not stop and tilt there head back more and try again. For children do the same thing but make your breaths more gentle. Infants you wanna cover both mouth and nose with your mouth and breathe even more gentle.
