It’s a new year so once again the rules for providing CPR have changed, slightly. Here is a quick overview to help breakdown the major points.
  1. Shout and Tap the individual
    1. If no response proceed to step 2.
    2. If there is a response CPR is not necessary
  2. Call 911
    1. Keep the phone near by to provide location information as well as to receive additional instruction from the 911 dispatcher
  3. Trained bystanders
    1. Provide CPR
  4. Push at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute
    1. To a depth of 2” for adults
    2. 1/3 the depth of chest for infants and children
  5. Provide breaths at a 30:2 rate of compressions to breaths
  6. Check for breathing
  7. Continue to provide CPR until the victim begins to breath or emergency services arrive

Hopefully you never need to perform CPR but just in case this quick guide should help.
