Begin CPR

If the victim is not breathing and has no pulse, begin CPR. Leave one hand on the top of the victim’s head. Place the middle 2 fingers of your other hand on the center of the victim's chest just below the nipple line. Compress the victim's chest 1.5 inches , about 1/3 the depth of the chest cavity. Compress at a rate of 100-120 per minute. Perform 30 compressions and then give 2 breaths. After 5 cycles of 30 compressions and 2 breaths, reassess the victim starting with a pulse check. If necessary continue CPR with a compression to ventilation ratio of 30:2 and reassess after every 5 cycles.



Cover the victim’s mouth with your mouth, pinch the nose and breathe slowly. The breaths should take 1 ½ - 2 seconds. Provide 2 rescue breaths while watching for the chest to rise with each breath. The volume of air is just enough to make the chest rise.

All CPR should be done on a hard, flat surface. However, infants are small enough so your forearm can be used effectively. This may be more difficult to perform if you are not experienced in CPR. The largest benefit is that you can perform CPR while moving the victim to a safe location or to a phone to activate EMS.
