Adult CPR | First Aid

an adult unconscious and not breathing adult CPR so first of all you would come in you would check the danger you check for response you speak and then you touch no response at all so hello hello I’m Emma and the first day go open your eyes nothing nothing at all so check for danger check for response no response open the airway you tilt the head you lift the chin and then to check for breathing you put your cheek above their mouth and nose to feel them breathing against your your cheek you look down the body to see their chest movements and you look you listen and feel and you’re feeling for at least two in up to ten seconds there is no breathing so this person is unconscious and not breathing I now need to start CPR cardiopulmonary resuscitation when I’m pushing on the chest I’m being the heart for them so pushing on the chest is squeezing the heart and pumping the blood around the body breathing into them is reoxygenate em people often ask about can you just do compressions you can do compressions and they’ll probably give them about 3 to 4 minutes because generally when an adult collapses they have 3 to 4 minutes worth of oxygenated blood in their system so if you are just pushing on the chest you’re giving them something but to give someone the best chance you would be giving the breaths as well and you would always look to don’t do that if you’ve been trained to do so unless you’re unwilling or unable to do so to give the compressions you’re going between the nipples Center the chest here in your hand and you’re going to have to push hard you’re pushing down but I like to see it sent to me about a third of the depth of their chest but about five to six centimeters roughly you’re pushing down hard and fast so 100 to 120 beats per minute so roughly 2 per seconds and you’re going to be doing 30 compressions to 2 breaths and when you’re pushing down you are circulating the blood 30 compressions and I haven’t got mercy but you would be doing 30 compressions to 2 breaths and when you’re giving the breaths you tilt the head you lift the chin you hold the nose and you breathe in twice and you should see the chest rise 2 breaths and then straight back onto the chest and you would keep going 3232 2 if you have a defibrillator you should start using that as quickly as possible so just to recap you’ve checked for danger you’ve checked response you’ve opened the airway you’ve checked for breathing they’re not breathing at this point you should be getting an ambulance on the way and if you have somebody else they should be getting an ambulance and a defibrillator for you straight away – you would then start 30 compressions to 2 breaths you keep going until the defibrillator arrives and then you can start using that and you don’t stop doing CPR unless the casualty starts recovering the paramedics arrive you are using the defibrillator or you are too tired to carry on you
