    • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation CPR
    • What is CPR?
      • It is the lifesaving technique useful in emergencies where a person’s breathing or heartbeat have stopped.
      • 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.
    • Before You Begin
      • Assess the situation
      • Is the person conscious or unconscious?
      • If they are conscious ask them if they are okay.
      • 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.
    • Remember your ABC’s
      • Airway: Clear the airway
      • Breathing: Breathe for the person
      • Circulation: Restore blood circulation with chest compressions.
    • Airway
      • Put the person on their back
      • Kneel next to their neck and shoulders.
      • Open the person’s airway by putting your palm on their forehead and gently tilting their head back.
      • Then gently lift their chin forward to open their airway.
      • Look for chest movement, and listen for breath sounds. If the person is not breathing, begin Mouth-to-Mouth with chest compressions .
    • Breathing
      • Can be performed mouth-to-mouth or mouth-to-nose if mouth is seriously injured.
      • With the air way open, pinch the nostrils shut, then cover the victim’s mouth with your mouth, making a good seal.
    • Prepare to give two rescue breaths
      • Give the first rescue breath, lasting 1 second---watch to see if the chest rises.
      • If their chest does rise, give a second breath.
      • If their chest does not rise, repeat head/chin tilt, as the airway may still be blocked. Give the second breath.
      • Begin chest compressions to restore circulation.
    • Circulation-restore circulation with chest compressions.
      • Position your body directly over your hands.
      • Give 15 fast chest compressions.
      • Give the person 2 slow breaths watching to make sure the chest rises.
      • Repeat chest compressions and breaths until help arrives.
    • Bad CPR is better than no CPR
      • Don’t worry about doing it wrong
      • After calling 911 begin CPR.
      • A bystander who witnesses someone collapse and is ready to perform CPR, can double or triple a person’s chances of surviving.
      • 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.
    • What did you learn?
      • When should CPR be used?
      • What is the first thing you or someone else should do before beginning CPR?
      • What do the ABC’s stand for?
      • What do you do if you breathe into the victim’s mouth and their chest does not move?
      • What do the chest compressions do to help the victim?
      • If you don’t know how to do CPR should you try it anyway? Why or why not?
