Breaths are given for 1 second.3. 3-5 minutes of persistent chest pain may be a heart attack.4. Only quit CPR if: the area becomes unsafe to continue, help arrives, there are signs of life, or if you are exhausted and can not continue
5. The 4 links to the cardiac chain of survival are:call 9-1-1early C.P.R.early defibulationearly advanced medical care6. To do CPR on an adult or child you use the heel of your hand and place hands in the center of the chest on the breastbone.7. Effective compressions are straight up and down, at about 100 compressions per minute, they are smooth and regular with your hand staying in one spot in the center of the breastbone.8. In 2 minutes you should do 5 cycles of CPR9. Infants who are having difficulty breathing making a wheezing or high pitched sound while breathing.10. If some one is coughing you should encourage them to continue coughing . You may need to go to a private area with them so they can cough forcefully enough so that they are not discouraged by others around.11. Causes of cardiac arrest in children and infants include: SIDS, traumatic injury, airway obstruction, breathing problems due to things like allergies and asthma12. You should give chest compressions to an adult at LEAST 2 inches in depth.13. Chest compressions should be given to children at a depth of no more than 2 inches.14. Chest compressions should be given to an infant at the depth of about 1.5 inches.15. You should do 5 back blows then 5 abdominal thrusts.16. When someone is choking you start with back blows.17. In giving abdominal thrusts to a child or adult you should put your fist in the middle of the abdomen just above the navel.18. You should hold an infant who is conscious and choking face down with the head lower than the chest so you can give back blows.19. When performing CPR on an infant you should place 2 fingers in the center of the breast bone between the nipples and the other hand on the forehead. 20. Chest compressions should be given with 2 fingers to an infant in the center of the chest on the breast bone in a straight up and down motion. These compressions should be delivered at the rate of 100 per minute . They should be smooth and regular and at the depth of about 1. 5 inches.21. CPR should be started for any age when there is no breathing and the person is not choking.22. If an infant can not cough, cry or breathe you should do cares for choking.
