Jacob's CPR

By Jacob Schenk

Adult CPR: First check scene. then check for response from paitent. then you or someone else alert emergency services and have them return in case of needing help.  then start CPR with 30 compressions (hands should be placed 2 fingers above the bottom of the sternum and in between the nipple line) and 2 rescue breaths(using face shield if not relative). Give 2 rescue breaths and continue with alternation of compressions and breaths until relived by EMS or someone with equal or better trainingChild CPR: first check scene. then alert EMS services. Also begin CPR(30 compressions [same place as with adult] with 2 rescue breaths[using face shield if not relative]).  Give 2 rescue breaths and continue with alternation of compressions and breaths until relived by EMS or someone with equal or better training.  Continue until EMS arrives or someone relives you.
Infant CPR: First check scene. Check for response. give 30 compressions in same place as adult and child but instead of hands use index and middle finger to compress one third of the chest depth. Give 2 rescue breaths and continue with alternation of compressions and breaths until relived by EMS or someone with equal or better training.

Conscious Choking: Adult, Child, Infant.

Conscious adult choking: Ask if they are choking and if they answer yes then begin abdominal thrusts(Heimlich Maneuver) until object is dislodged. Conscious Child choking: Ask if choking and if they answer yes or nod their head begin abdominal thrusts(Heimlich Maneuver) until object is dislodged.
Conscious Infant choking: Place Infant on thigh portion of leg and give 5 back blows then while cradling the head flip onto opposite hand and deliver 5 chest thrusts. alternate back and chest blows until infant coughs up object or becomes unconscious.

Unconscious Choking: Adult, Child, Infant.

Unconscious Adult Choking: If coming upon victim check scene.and call 9-1-1. If doing conscious choking and victim goes unconscious lower victim to ground and first check mouth for object. give 30 compressions as if you were doing CPR. check mouth for object after 30 compressions. (if object is in mouth remove while wearing gloved hand by doing a finger sweep). Give 2 breaths if don't go in reposition and try again if they do not go in a second time go into chest compressions after that give 2 breaths again keep repeating until EMS arrives or if person becomes conscious or if someone relives u with equal or better training.
Unconscious Child Choking: Exact same procedure as Adult only different compression depth. Adult: 1-2 and a half inches. Child: one third the depth of the chest.
Unconscious Infant Choking: Exact same procedure as Adult and Child except for depth of chest compressions. Adult: 1-2 and a half inches. Child: one third the depth of the chest. Infant: also one third the depth of the chest.

Arterial Bleeding

Arterial Bleeding: when coming across victim with bleeding. First call 9-1-1 then apply a pressure bandage on the wound and then wrap the wound tightly to the skin and then elevate above the level of the heart and if it bleeds through the gauze DO NOT REMOVE THE BANDAGES OR GAUZE you may if you remove the bandages remove a scab that had started to form under the bandages.
