Perform CPR Yes You Can!
Basic Life Support for Adults and Children (Ages 1-8)
If you are alone with a child victim, give two minutes of CPR before calling 911. Check the victim for unresponsiveness. If there is no response, have someone CALL 911 and return to the victim. In most locations, the emergency dispatcher can assist you with CPR instructions.
For unresponsive children, the lone rescuer should perform 5 cycles (about 2 minutes of CPR before phoning 911).
Position heel of one hand in the center of the chest with second hand on top.
Firmly push down at least 2 inches on the chest 30 times.
Position heel of one hand in the center of the chest with/without second hand on top.
Firmly push down at least 1/3 to 1/2 depth of chest 30 times.
If the victim is not breathing normally, begin chest compressions. Push down on the chest at least 2 inches for adults and 1/3 to 1/2 depth of chest for children ages 1-8. Pump 30 times right between the nipples. Push hard and push fast by compressing the chest at a rate of at least 100/minute. Allow chest to recoil (return to normal position) completely after each compression.
Give two effective breaths. If unable or unwilling to give breaths continue to give compression.
Continue with two breaths and 30 pumps until help arrives.
NOTE: This ratio is the same for one-person and two-person CPR. In two-person CPR, the person pumping the chest stops while the other gives mouth-to-mouth breathing.
First Aid for Choking Children 1-8 Years Old
When in a pool or shallow water
From behind, wrap the arms around your victim's waist, placing the thumb side of the fist against the victim's abdomen.
With the other hand, grab the fist and press into the abdomen with a quick upward thrust.
When the victim is lying on the ground
Place the victim on her back. Turn her face to one side to drain water from her mouth.
If the adult or child is or becomes unresponsive, perform CPR. If you see an object in the throat or mouth, remove it.
Basic Life Support for Infants (Less than 1 year old)
Shout and gently tap the infant on the shoulder. If there is no response, position the infant on his or her back.
If no regular breathing, give 30 effective chest compressions at the rate of at least 100 per minute. Position your 3rd and 4th fingers in center of chest, just below nipple line. Press down about at least 1/3 to 1/2 the depth of the chest. Push hard and fast and allow chest to recoil completely.
Open the airway by tilting head and lifting the chin. Do not tilt the head too far back.
If the infant is NOT breathing regularly, give 2 small gentle breaths. Cover the infant's mouth and nose with your mouth. Each breath should be 1 second long. You should see the infant's chest rise with each breath.
Repeat with cycles of 2 breaths and 30 compressions. After two minutes of care, call 911 and continue giving breaths and compressions.
CPR training courses are offered by the American Heart Association (for training courses near, you call 1-800-AHAUSA1), the American Red Cross, and by many local Fire Departments.
During cardiac arrest, the heart stops pumping blood, the blood pressure falls to zero and the pulse disappears. Within 10 seconds of cardiac arrest the person loses consciousness and becomes unresponsive. Sometimes a person in cardiac arrest may make grunting, gasping or snoring type breathing sounds for a couple of minutes. DO NOT be confused by this abnormal type of breathing.
Pushing on the Chest
In general, the chest should be pushed down at least 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Sometimes you may hear a cracking sound. Do not be alarmed. The sound is caused by cartilage or ribs cracking. Even if this occurs, the damage is not serious. The risk of delaying CPR or not doing CPR is far greater than a broken rib.
A person in cardiac arrest may have abnormal breathing for a couple minutes. This is called "agonal respiration" and is the result of the brain's breathing center sending out signals even though circulation has ceased. The key point is that the abnormal breathing may sound like grunting, gasping or snoring. It disappears in 2 to 3 minutes. If you see this type of breathing, DO NOT delay CPR. The person desperately needs air and only you can provide it.
Complications of CPR
Vomiting is the most frequently encountered complication of CPR. If the victim starts to vomit, turn the head to the side and try to sweep out or wipe off the vomit. Continue with CPR.
Checking the Pulse
The pulse check is no longer taught or expected of laypersons. Instead, if you see no signs of life (defined as breathing normally, coughing or moving), you should begin to pump on the chest. Please note that the pulse check is still expected of health care providers.
