What is CPR?

During a cardiac arrest, the heart cannot do pump blood to the body's major organs on its own. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique that manually pumps blood throughout the body. The organs need the oxygen contained in blood to survive, and without it, severe brain damage will occur within four minutes, and the victim will die within ten minutes. Therefore, performing immediate CPR dramatically improves a victim's chances of survival.

What are the current guidelines for performing CPR?

The latest American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations for performing CPR are:

  • Check the victim for signs of life, including a pulse and normal breathing. If they are not responsive and do not have a pulse, begin CPR immediately while having another bystander call 911. Fast action is critical to a victim's survival, so rescuers should not delay beginning CPR.
  • Rescuers should perform chest compressions, pushing down a minimum depth of 2 inches into the victim's chest at the rate of 2 compressions per second. Continue compressions until emergency medical assistance arrives and can take over.
  • If a victim is not breathing, rescuers should perform CPR along with rescue breathing. Placing the mouth over the victim's, deliver one rescue breath and observe if their chest rises. If it does not, give a second breath before resuming chest compressions.
  • Follow a ratio of 30:2 chest compressions to rescue breaths where one rescuer is present, or 15:2 if two rescuers are present.

What is the correct way to perform pediatric CPR?

Use extreme caution when performing CPR on infants and small children. Child and infant CPR follows the same basic procedure as adult CPR, with a few key differences:

1. Compress the chest no more than 1/3 of the depth of the child's chest.
2. Use only the fingers of one hand to perform chest compressions on infants.
3. Rescue breaths should not be forceful. Rescuers should cover the infant's nose and mouth with their mouth when performing rescue breathing.
4. Use a ratio of 15:2 compressions to rescue breaths.
5. When an AED is required, use the pediatric pads that accompany the device and follow the device's voice-activated instructions child and infant use.

What is the recommended way to treat severe allergic reactions to insect bites?

Most insect stings induce mild reactions, but reactions can be fatal if untreated for people with allergies. If an anaphylactic reaction occurs, rescuers must use an auto-injector, typically an EPI pen, on the victim's thigh to prevent death. Signs of anaphylaxis include trouble breathing, redness, abdominal pain, swelling of the face, lips, and throat, hives, faintness, and vomiting. Rescuers should perform CPR when needed and place the victim lying on their side to prevent choking.

Mild allergic reactions can be treated with Benadryl, removing the stinger, and applying ice to the area. Mild allergic reaction signs include swelling, nausea, and vomiting. Because mild symptoms can mirror anaphylaxis when they begin, rescuers should watch for additional swelling of the mouth and lips, which can indicate constriction of the throat and airway that will make a victim unable to breathe. When in doubt, rescuers should administer the auto-injector and call 911 for further treatment.
