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.

How does the CPR procedure change if there are multiple rescuers?

Ideally, two or more bystanders will be present and perform CPR together. One rescuer can immediately begin chest compressions while the other rescuer calls 911 and retrieves the nearest AED. When rescue breathing is required, one person can perform chest compressions, and the other can administer rescue breaths, alternating at a rate of 15 compressions to every two breaths. Rescuers should trade positions every few minutes to avoid fatigue.
