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 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.

Call 911. You do not need someone's permission to call 911. If they become unconscious then permission is implied and you can perform CPR if necessary. Continue to perform CPR until EMS arrives.

If there is no phone available then you need to use your judgement. It depends on how far away is the victim from a phone. If the phone is more that 2 minutes away, you can provide 5 cycles of CPR to buy the victim more time before biological death sets in. If a victim is in cardiac arrest and you leave them for 10-12 minutes, they will have very little chance of survival.
