When you do CPR on someone, there are three steps that you need to follow. CAB. Which stands for Compressions, Airway, and Breathing.
- Make sure the victim is flat on their back.
- Place the heel of your hand in the middle of the chest of the victim and interlace your fingers on top, to make a sort of fist.
- Start chest compressions, pressing at least 2 inches down.
- Do 30 compressions, at 100 compressions a minute and then move to the next step
- Tip chin up, tilt head back and make sure the victim’s airway is clear.
- Check for normal breathing. If the victim is gasping, that doesn’t count.
- Now you can start mouth to mouth rescue breathing
- Keeping the victim’s head tilted back, with the chin up, place your mouth on the victims. Seal it, so that no air can escape.
- Breath two 1 second long breaths. Don’t breath super hard.
- The victim’s chest should rise and fall
- After this, do 3o chest compressions, 2 rescue breaths, 30 compressions, etc until the emergency services arrive.
