What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is used to save the life of a person who goes into cardiac arrest, which occurs when their heart stops beating unexpectedly. When the heart stops, it does not supply the body's major organs, like the kidneys and the brain, with the oxygen they normally receive from the blood. Without the heart pumping oxygenated blood to the organs, they can suffer irreversible damage, which can be fatal. Without oxygen, brain damage can occur after four minutes, and death can occur within ten minutes. When the heart cannot do it on its own, CPR manually pumps blood to the organs.

What are the latest guidelines for CPR?

According to the latest American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, the official CPR procedure in Washington state uses the following steps:

  • Check the victim for responsiveness by asking, “Are you okay?” and shaking them firmly. If they are unresponsive and do not have a pulse, call 911 and begin performing CPR immediately.
  • Perform rapid chest compressions at a rate of 120 per minute, pushing down a minimum of 2-2.4 inches on the victim’s chest. Continue compressions until emergency medical assistance arrives.
  • If a victim is not breathing, rescuers should perform rescue breathing where they place their mouth over the victim’s, deliver one rescue breath, and observe if their chest rises. If it does not, give the second breath before resuming chest compressions.
  • Continue using the ratio of 30:2 compressions to rescue breaths.

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.

What is the treatment for chest wounds?

To treat a chest wound, begin by calling 911. While waiting for emergency personnel to arrive, place a clean dressing, such as a sterile pad or wrap, over the wound and apply firm, direct pressure to stop the bleeding. Change open chest wound bandages before they become saturated. Leave chest wounds open to prevent risks associated with trapping air inside the pleural space in the chest cavity. Do not remove objects from the wound, as this can cause further damage. Instead, wait with the victim until emergency medical personnel arrives.
