What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique used when a cardiac emergency occurs. Cardiac arrest happens if the heart unexpectedly stops beating. Without a heartbeat, the heart cannot pump blood to the body’s major organs like the brain and liver. Blood contains oxygen, which these organs require to survive. Without oxygen, severe brain damage occurs within four minutes, and death occurs within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps oxygenated blood to the organs when the heart cannot do so due to cardiovascular complications.

What is the proper way to perform CPR?

Every moment matters to increase a victim’s chance of survival. Therefore, rescuers should not hesitate to begin CPR. The American Heart Association describes the proper CPR guidelines as follows:

  • Check the victim for responsiveness by asking loudly, “Are you okay?” and shaking their shoulder firmly. If they are unresponsive and do not have a pulse, rescuers should call 911 and begin CPR immediately.
  • Rescuers should perform rapid chest compressions at a rate of 120 beats per minute, firmly pressing down a minimum of 2 inches deep into the victim’s chest. Continue compressions until emergency medical assistance arrives and can take over.
  • If a victim is not breathing normally, rescuers should perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, also known as rescue breathing. Placing their mouth over the victim’s, rescuers should deliver one rescue breath and observe if the victim’s chest rises. If the chest does not inflate, give a second breath before resuming chest compressions.
  • Perform CPR at a ratio of 30 compressions to 2 rescue breaths and continue this pattern until emergency medical staff arrives. If a victim’s normal breath returns, rescuers can continue to perform compressions only.

What is the recommended way to check a victim’s airway?

To determine if a victim needs rescue breathing, a rescuer should check for signs of normal breathing. Placing an ear above the mouth and nostrils allows rescuers to determine if a victim is breathing, as does watching the chest rise and fall pattern that occurs with natural breath.

If the victim requires rescue breathing because they are not breathing normally on their own, the rescuer must first clear their airway. To do this, they will lean the victim’s head back and tilt the chin up. Any obstructing or foreign objects in the mouth should be removed to prevent choking. Once the airway is open, the rescuer can begin mouth to mouth resuscitation.

Q. Which first aid techniques are the most important to learn?

First aid training teach the basics needed to assess injured people and provide treatment until they can seek professional medical care. Courses will cover procedures for treating accidental injuries such as head injuries, wounds, burns, poisoning, choking, bone fractures, and more. Individuals can take first aid classes either in a group setting or independently online. It is important to note that free first aid classes are informative but don't provide nationally-recognized certification or the in-depth training that many participants require.

Q. What is the recommended way to treat a black eye?

A black eye occurs when there is a sudden trauma to the eye area. A black eye results from broken blood vessels or bleeding beneath the skin around the eye. Hyphema occurs when bleeding is present inside the eye. Most black eyes are treatable by applying an ice pack to reduce swelling. In cases where blood is visible in the eye, when the victim has any sudden vision problems, or where blood is leaking from the eye, victims must seek immediate medical care at the nearest emergency room.
