Did You Know?
- For lay rescuers, checking the pulse is not done as a victim who collapses and is unresponsive is considered a victim of SCA and CPR should be started immediately
- A healthcare provider should not take more than 10 seconds in checking for a pulse before starting CPR
- For effective chest compressions, push hard and push fast.
- Compressions should have a rate of at least 100 compressions per minute.
- Compression depth should be at least 2 inches or 5 centimeters
- Always allow for full recoil of the chest after each compression to allow for the heart to fill before the next compression
- Compression: ventilation rate should be delivered at 30:2 for adults and 15:2 for infants
- Rescue breaths should be delivered over 1 second
- Give sufficient breath to produce a visible chest rise
