What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique that saves lives in cardiopulmonary arrest and other cardiovascular emergencies. A cardiac arrest is an emergency that occurs when the heart unexpectedly stops beating. When the heart stops, it does not pump oxygen to the body's major organs, which are contained in the blood. Brain damage occurs within four minutes without oxygen, and death can occur within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps oxygenated blood to the organs and, as a result, significantly increases a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival when performed within the first few minutes after the collapse.

What are the basic guidelines for performing CPR?

When a cardiac arrest occurs, the victim’s chance of survival decreases with every second that passes. Therefore, rescuers must perform CPR as soon as possible after a cardiac arrest victim collapses to give them the best chance of survival. To begin, rescuers should check the victim for responsiveness and determine if they have a pulse. If there is no pulse, they should call 911 and immediately begin CPR.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that rescuers use the following steps when performing CPR:

  • Placing the hands on top of one another and keeping the arms straight, rescuers should position their body directly above the victim’s chest.
  • Pump the victim’s chest to perform rapid compressions, at a rate of 2 compressions per second, or 120 compressions per minute. Ensure that each compression presses a minimum depth of 2 inches into the chest.
  • Compressions-only CPR is the most basic technique, and it is recommended for rescuers who are not CPR certified. If a rescuer is CPR certified, it is recommended that they perform rescue breathing in cases where the victim is not breathing on their own.
  • Rescuers must clear the airway by tilting the head back and lifting the chin to begin rescue breathing. Next, they will place their mouth on top of the victim’s mouth to form a seal and deliver one rescue breath, looking to see if the victim’s chest rises. If it does rise, the rescuer may return to performing chest compressions. If the chest does not rise, give the second breath, resume chest compressions and continue to deliver two rescue breaths for every 30 chest compressions. Repeat this 30:2 ratio of compressions to breaths until the victim is breathing normally or emergency medical support arrives. Do not stop chest compressions until emergency personnel can take over.

Does the CPR procedure differ for children?

Child and infant CPR follows the same basic procedures as adult CPR, with few changes and a gentler touch. The infant and child CPR guidelines are:

  • Chest compressions should only be as deep as 1/3 of the child's chest depth and no more than 2 inches.
  • Follow a 15:2 ratio of chest compressions to rescue breaths when performing rescue breathing. Rescue breaths should be softer than they are for adults.
  • Only one hand may be required for compressions on very young children, and for infants, rescuers should use only several fingers to compress the chest.

What is an AED, and when is one needed?

CPR pumps blood to the organs when the heart stops during a cardiac arrest, but restarting the heart requires an automated external defibrillator (AED). These devices are available in public areas like airports, subway stations, libraries, schools, parks, shopping malls, and sports arenas. An AED is needed when a victim does not have a pulse.

After delivering five cycles of chest compressions, another bystander should go to retrieve an AED. The voice-automated device will guide the rescuer through each step of use. After using the AED, rescuers should confirm that the victim’s pulse returns before they stop delivering chest compressions. They may continue rescue breathing if the victim is not breathing on their own.

Q. What information will I learn from free first aid classes?

Free online first aid classes will teach participants the basics of treating accidental injuries. Some of the main first aid procedures that will be covered include treating bone fractures, wounds, burns, poisoning, choking (foreign body airway obstruction), seizures, eye injuries, and head injuries. It is essential to remember that free first aid or CPR training classes tend to provide instruction only and will not provide certification upon completion. A proper course with a CPR and first aid exam are required for individuals who wish to obtain official first aid and CRP certification.

Q. How is hypothermia treated?

Hypothermia can occur if a victim falls into freezing water or becomes stranded in a cold environment for an extended period. With hypothermia, the body's temperature drops below 95 degrees Fahrenheit and loses heat more quickly than it can produce energy. When untreated, hypothermia causes the nervous system to stop functioning and leads to organ damage and death.

Rescuers must remove any of the victim's damp clothing in exchange for warm, dry clothing or blankets. Provide the victim with a hot drink and a warm, dry compress such as a hot water bottle. If the victim is unconscious, rescuers should call 911 and perform rescue breathing and chest compressions if they do not have a pulse.
