What is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique, that can be beneficial in situations such as a heart attack of a near-drowning; a situation in which someone’s breathing or heart rate stops. CPR can keep oxygen flowing to the brain and other vital organs, until further medical treatment can be provided. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that everyone to begin with chest compressions first. It is always better to do something than to do nothing, in the case you are feeling like your skills are a bit rusty or that your knowledge and abilities aren’t 100%, remember, the difference between doing nothing and doing something could be someone’s life.
Here’s advice from the American Heart Association for if you are…
- Untrained: If you’re not trained in CPR, then provide hands-only CPR. That means uninterrupted chest compressions of 100 to 120 a minute until paramedics arrive (described in more detail below). You don’t need to try rescue breathing.
- Trained and ready to go: If you’re well-trained and confident in your ability, check to see if there is a pulse and breathing. If there is no breathing or any pulse within 10 seconds, begin chest compressions. Start CPR with 30 chest compressions before giving two rescue breaths.
- Trained years ago and rusty: If you’ve previously received CPR training but you’re not confident in your abilities, then just do chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 a minute. Please note: This advice is only relevant for adults, children, and infants over 4 weeks of age. Newborns follow a separate protocol.
- To learn CPR effectively, take an accredited CPR training class that covers how to use an automatic defibrillator (AED). If you are untrained but need immediate help, dial 911 and they will give directions on performing CPR.
CPR EDUCATION was developed by firefighters who had a shared vision of ensuring that as many people as possible learned CPR. This procedure can be used in any unforeseen emergency with a loved one or anyone who may suddenly require life-saving treatment.
