First Aid Treatments : How to Do CPR

You know when we least expect it, we can run
into a victim of an injury, accident or illness that would require the basics steps of CPR.
Hi I’m Captain Joe Bruni and what we are going to demonstrate and talk about is how to perform
CPR. CPR is a basic life saving function that starts off by assessing airway breathing and
circulation, commonly referred to as the abc’s. We would first use the head tilt chin lift
maneuver to open the airway as we look, listen and feel for chest rise, airway exchange against
our cheek, and listening for airway exchange with our ear. We would then feel for circulation
to see if the person has a heart rate. If they are not breathing, we would deliver two
quick rescue breaths by pinching off the nose, opening the airway and breathing in the patient’s
mouth. After two quick rescue breaths we would start by placing one hand on top of the other,
between the nipple line, on top of the breastbone. And begin the process of about a two inch
to two and a half inch depth on CPR and chest compressions. The rate would be thirty compressions
to two ventilations. We’re striving for a hundred and twenty compressions per minute.
So they would be rapid and very, very quick. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
nine, ten and so on. After thirty we stop, head tilt chin lift, deliver to rescue breaths
and go back to chest compressions once again. The basic step for performing CPR can be a
life saving measure in this type of situation. I’m Captain Joe Bruni, stay safe and we’ll
see you next time.

  1. thanks for the video but these people never say what to do if the persons heart stopped or.. idk.. instead of not breathing.. they are actually breathing but unconcious.. So if they are breathing we give them a cigarette and light it up ? :O

  2. @msakallioglu "…if the persons heart stopped or…" – That's the purpose of CPR; if the person's heart has stopped beating and/or if they're not breathing, you perform CPR. If they're breathing and their heart is beating but they're just unconscious, lift their legs above the ground so it's positioned higher than their head. This is to bring more blood flow into their brain.
