3 CPR Steps Everyone Should Know from caitlynwilliams's blog

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, better known as CPR, is a potentially life-saving procedure useful in many medical emergencies, including a heart attack, choking or near drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat gets stopped. Using the CPR steps on someone who is not breathing can double or triple the chance of survival until the professional medical services arrive. People without CPR Training can also save a life by performing the following CPR steps:

Chest compression: Lean forward so that your hands are directly over the person’s chest and push at least 2 inches deep and twice per second. This step helps in keeping the person’s blood circulating until healthcare professional arrives.

Open the airway: Open the person’s airway by tilting the head back and lifting the chin up. By doing this you open their airway.

Rescue Breathing: Rescue breathing can be mouth to mouth breathing or mouth to nose breathing, which helps get oxygen to the lungs for a person who has stopped breathing. This step can be followed with the airway open, pinch the nostrils shut for mouth to mouth breathing to make the person’s chest rise. 

When a person initiates CPR immediately after someone's stop breathing, it can maintain blood circulation and breathing until the medical help arrives. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation can mean the difference between life and death. Get CPR trained and help save a life!
