Rescue Breathing

If the victim has a pulse but is not breathing, provide rescue breathing at a rate of 1 breath every 3-5 seconds. The breaths should be sufficient to make the chest rise and be delivered over 1 ½ - 2 seconds. Deliver rescue breaths for about 1 minute, then re-assess the victim starting this time with a pulse check.



IMPORTANT:
Be careful not to breathe with too much force or volume. This will cause abdominal distension. The victim’s abdomen will swell and make it difficult to ventilate.

During CPR, the victim's chest should rise about the same amount as during normal breathing. If you don't see the chest rise, CPR will not be effective. If the chest rises and you continue to breath into the victim, abdominal distention may result and CPR will not be effective.
