- CPR Training by John Smallwood The British Heart Foundation
- CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It’s a life saving medical procedure which is given to someone who is in cardiac arrest. It helps to pump blood around the person's body when their heart can’t.
- How to do CPR
Never do nothing! To perform CPR, follow the simple steps below:
Step 1: Shake and shout:
Check for a response – gently shake the person’s shoulders and ask loudly 'are you alright?'.
Shout for help – if someone is nearby, ask them to stay as you might need them. If you are alone, shout loudly to attract attention, but don't leave the person.
Step 2: Check for normal breathing.
Regular chest movements.
Listening for breathing.
Feeling for breath on your cheek.
Look, listen and feel for no more than 10 seconds. Don’t confuse gasps with normal breathing.
If you’re not sure if their breathing is normal, act as if it's not normal.
Step 3: Call 999.
Step 4: Give 30 chest compressions.
Step 5: Give two rescue breaths.
Step 6: Repeat Steps 4 and 5, until an ambulance arrives.
