This is the first lesson in chapter five, the topic being Adult CPR. This detailed lesson focuses entirely on administering CPR in adults. Controlling the scene and surrounding area is the first step. Proper compression and breathing is explained. “CPR is comprised of chest compressions, airway management, and rescue breathing. To deliver high-quality CPR, begin with high-quality chest compressions. Compressing the chest circulates blood to the brain and the heart. Chest compressions should be delivered at a rate between 100 to 120 beats per minute and depth of 2 to 2.4 inches (that is, 5 to 6 cm). To provide CPR to any adult, the first thing to do is to make sure the scene and area around the individual is safe. Then, tap them and talk loudly asking if they’re okay. Yell for help. Use a cellphone to call 911 and send a bystander to get an AED. Check the individual’s breathing. If the individual is not responding, breathing, or only gasping, start CPR. Give 30 compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 beats per minute and at a depth between 2 to 2.4 inches (that is, 5 to 6 cm). Let the chest rise back up before the next compression. Open the airway to give two breaths.” Need certified or rectified in CPR, visit https://disquefoundation.org/cpr-first-aid-aed-certification-renewal/ ************************************** Follow us on social media!
