Child CPR

  1. 1. Child CPR Learn child CPR step- by-step.
  2. 2. Child CPR • Anyone can be affected by cardiac arrest—even children. • There are several differences between adult and child CPR—it’s important to take note of them.
  3. 3. Check the Scene • Is it safe to provide assistance? • Things that may harm you or the victim include fires, falling debris, risk of electrocution, or other hazards.
  4. 4. Check for a Response • Check the victim for a response. • Don’t check the pulse unless you are a trained physician. • Ask the victim, “Are you okay?”
  5. 5. Call Emergency Services • Get help fast. • Call 911 or get someone to do it for you.
  6. 6. Chest Compressions • Place the heel of one hand on the lower part of the center of the chest, and the heel of the other hand on top, so they overlap. • Lock your elbows. • Have your arms at 90 degrees from the victim’s chest.
  7. 7. Chest Compressions • For very small children, you may only need to use one hand to perform chest compressions. • Compress the victim’s chest approximately 1/3 the depth of the chest. • Do 30 compressions.
  8. 8. Chest Compressions • Allow the victim’s chest to completely recoil between compressions so the heart can fill with blood. • Your beat should be fast and hard—about 100 per minute. Think the BeeGees’ hit, “Stayin’ Alive.”
  9. 9. Ventilations • After 30 compressions, open the airway by tilting the head back and lifting the chin. • Pinch the nose shut and make a complete seal over the victim’s mouth with yours.
  10. 10. Ventilations • Deliver 2 breaths. • Each ventilation should last about 1 second in duration. • Check to make sure the victim’s chest moved—if not, you’ll need to reposition the head.
  11. 11. Ventilations • Give one breath at 3 to 5 second intervals. • The compression to ventilation ratio for children is 30:2 if there is only a single rescuer.
  12. 12. Multiple Rescuers • If there is more than one person available to perform CPR, take turns to avoid fatigue. • For children, the compression to breath ratio is 15:2 if there are multiple rescuers.
  13. 13. Child CPR Differences • Compression to breath ratio for 2 rescuer CPR is 15:2. • Depth of chest compression is at least one third the depth of the chest (approximately 2 inches). • 1 or 2 handed compression technique for small children. • “Hands-only” CPR (doing chest compressions with no breaths) is not recommended for children.
