Heading 3

Think of the song 'Stayin Alive' by the Bee Gee's to guide how fast to do the compressions. One compression for every beat of the music.

  • Make sure there isn't anything in the mouth obstructing breathing

  • If the person vomits, don't panic you did nothing wrong

  • Tilt the head to the side and wipe out the mouth with a cloth or your fingers

      Make sure you keep the airway open at all times!

Has the person responded by waking up or starting to breathe on their own?

If the victim doesn't wake up and remains pulseless do the following

If you have access to an AED get it now, place it on the patient and follow the devices instructions

1. Make sure the airway is clear and that rescue breathing is working

2. If you have Narcan, and have't given it GIVE IT NOW.

3. Make sure you are doing the compressions correctly

4. After 30 compressions give 2 rescue breaths. Continue the 30:2 ratio 

5. If you're not doing rescue breathing its ok. The compressions will provide oxygen to the person. Although not as good, it will still work.

6. Have someone check to see when help will arrive

7. DON'T GIVE UP! Continue the rescue until help arrives. Even it seems useless the victim may wake up even after a prolonged rescue
