By:Jodi More


Airway- Open Airway using head tilt chin lift, Look in the mouth to make sure the airway is clear. If  you see any foreign object, sweep it out right away.

Breathing-Give 2 breaths lasting 1 second each. Watch for chest rise and fall.Note: If not using a mask, make sure you make a seal over the mouth on an adult or child and pinch the nose closed each time you give a breath. On an infant, make sure to cover the mouth and nose with your mouth.

• Continue cycles of 30 compressions to 2 breaths until an AED arrives, advanced medical personnel take over, the patient shows signs of life, the scene becomes unsafe, or you are too exhausted to continue.
