Rescue Breathing

If the victim has a pulse but is not breathing, provide rescue breathing at a rate of 1 breath every 6th second. The breaths should be sufficient to make the chest rise and be delivered over 1 ½ - 2 seconds. Deliver 10 rescue breaths (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.

Online CPR
If a victim has no signs of circulation, perform CPR. A victim who is not breathing can still have a pulse until the supply of oxygen in their blood is depleted. Then they will go into cardiac arrest and require CPR. A victim will not be breathing normally if they don't have a pulse. Ignore occasional gasping breaths. A victim should breath at least once every 6 seconds. If they are breathing once every 20 seconds then that is not normal breathing. If there is a pulse but not breathing normally: Perform Rescue Breathing. If there are no signs of circulation: Perform CPR
