Begin CPR

If the victim is not breathing and has no pulse, begin CPR. Take your hand from the top of the victim’s head and place heel of your palm on the lower half of the sternum between the victim's nipples, Leave your other hand positioned on the victim's forehead. Position yourself so that the arm you are using for compressions is perpendicular to the victim. Compress the victim’s chest about 2” or 1/3 the depth of the body cavity. Compress at a rate of 100-120 per minute. Be sure to push hard and fast. 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.

To give rescue breaths, first open the victim’s airway. This is done with the head tilt/chin lift. Place your hand of the victim’s forehead while gently lifting the victim's chin with 2 fingers from your other hand. While you can’t swallow your tongue, when unconscious it can fall to the back of the mouth and block the victim’s airway. Sometimes the head tilt/chin lift will cause spontaneous respirations.
