Before starting call your local health authorities (811)
Step 1: How to Check Someone is Breathing
In the first instance, you must establish the casualty’s situation in order to determine if CPR is an appropriate course of action.
Step 3: Chest Compressions
Chest compressions can be attempted by anyone, and when used on their own, are known as hands-only CPR. They are always the first step to take when administering CPR.
Step 2: Open the Airway
Obstructions can sometimes be the cause of irregular or lack of breathing. As a result, it’s important to open the airway to be certain the patient is in cardiac arrest, and to facilitate the effectiveness of CPR.
Step 4: Rescue Breaths
If you are not confident giving rescue breaths, then you should continue to give chest compressions until professional medical help arrives. If you are familiar with the procedure or have received CPR training, then rescue breaths should be given twice after each set of 30 chest compressions.
