Cpr Presentation

  1. 1. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation CPR
  2. 2. What is CPR? <ul><li>It is the lifesaving technique useful in emergencies where a person’s breathing or heartbeat have stopped. </li></ul><ul><li>It involves chest compression and mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing, this process keeps oxygenated blood circulating to the brain and other vital organs until the heart can return to its natural rhythm. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Before You Begin <ul><li>Assess the situation </li></ul><ul><li>Is the person conscious or unconscious? </li></ul><ul><li>If they are conscious ask them if they are okay. </li></ul><ul><li>If they do not respond have someone else call 911, or if you are alone and have a phone, call 911 yourself before beginning CPR. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Remember your ABC’s <ul><li>Airway: Clear the airway </li></ul><ul><li>Breathing: Breathe for the person </li></ul><ul><li>Circulation: Restore blood circulation with chest compressions. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Airway <ul><li>Put the person on their back </li></ul><ul><li>Kneel next to their neck and shoulders. </li></ul><ul><li>Open the person’s airway by putting your palm on their forehead and gently tilting their head back. </li></ul><ul><li>Then gently lift their chin forward to open their airway. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for chest movement, and listen for breath sounds. If the person is not breathing, begin Mouth-to-Mouth with chest compressions . </li></ul>
  6. 6. Breathing <ul><li>Can be performed mouth-to-mouth or mouth-to-nose if mouth is seriously injured. </li></ul><ul><li>With the air way open, pinch the nostrils shut, then cover the victim’s mouth with your mouth, making a good seal. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Prepare to give two rescue breaths <ul><li>Give the first rescue breath, lasting 1 second---watch to see if the chest rises. </li></ul><ul><li>If their chest does rise, give a second breath. </li></ul><ul><li>If their chest does not rise, repeat head/chin tilt, as the airway may still be blocked. Give the second breath. </li></ul><ul><li>Begin chest compressions to restore circulation. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Circulation-restore circulation with chest compressions. <ul><li>Position your body directly over your hands. </li></ul><ul><li>Give 15 fast chest compressions. </li></ul><ul><li>Give the person 2 slow breaths watching to make sure the chest rises. </li></ul><ul><li>Repeat chest compressions and breaths until help arrives. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Bad CPR is better than no CPR <ul><li>Don’t worry about doing it wrong </li></ul><ul><li>After calling 911 begin CPR. </li></ul><ul><li>A bystander who witnesses someone collapse and is ready to perform CPR, can double or triple a person’s chances of surviving. </li></ul><ul><li>If nothing else, put your hands in the middle of the person’s chest, push and relax, push and relax. Keep repeating the same rhythm, and do not stop until help arrives. </li></ul>
  10. 10. What did you learn? <ul><li>When should CPR be used? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the first thing you or someone else should do before beginning CPR? </li></ul><ul><li>What do the ABC’s stand for? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you do if you breathe into the victim’s mouth and their chest does not move? </li></ul><ul><li>What do the chest compressions do to help the victim? </li></ul><ul><li>If you don’t know how to do CPR should you try it anyway? Why or why not? </li></ul>
