Determine Responsiveness and Activate EMS

When you observe the victim, the first thing to do is determine if he or she is conscious. If victim is alert but experiencing possible signs and syptoms of a heart attack, tell the victim to lay down or sit quietly and call 911 To do this simply shake the victim and ask loudly; “Are you Okay?” Look, Listen and Feel for signs of normal breathing. Ignore agonal/gasping breaths. If no response and the victim is not breathing, act immediately. If you are alone with no mobile phone, leave the victim to activate the emergency response system and get the AED (if available) before returning to your victim and beginning CPR as quickly as possible. If you are not alone have someone else activate EMS immediately. Single someone out and instruct him or her to “CALL 911, them them we have an unconscious victim and come back. Do you understand?” If they do not respond, be sure to send someone else.

Assessment

To check for signs of circulation, find the carotid artery and check for a pulse for a full 10 seconds. The carotid can easily be found in the victim's neck. It is about an inch away from the cricoids cartilage in a depression on the side of the neck. Also look for other signs of circulation such as movement and color.
