Sample text

If the person is not breathing or is only gasping for breath (agonal breaths), go immediately to step 4. 4. If there is no breathing or abnormal breathing (only agonal gasps) and you are alone, summon help, call a code, or phone 911 and get an AED. Send a second rescuer, if available, for help. 5. Position the person face up on a hard, flat surface. 6. Assess the carotid pulse (no more than 10 sec). 7. The first rescuer begins the sequence of 30 chest compressions followed by 2 breaths. 8. The second rescuer arrives with the bag-mask device, turns on the AED, and attaches the pads.

Push hard and fast, delivering 30 compressions in less than 18 sec. ■ Make sure you allow for complete chest recoil after each compression. ■ Chest compressions should be interrupted infrequently and for no longer than 10 sec. Pulse checks, even to determine return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC), should be minimized during resuscitation. ■ After every fifth cycle (2 min), rescuers should switch roles. This minimizes rescuer fatigue, which can reduce compression rates and/or depth to an inadequate level even if unrecognized.

A systematic approach incorporates the basic life support (BLS) and ACLS surveys. Emphasis is on high-quality CPR and early defibrillation (for VF or pulseless VT). When first encountering a cardiopulmonary emergency/arrest, always make sure the scene is safe before initiating BLS and ACLS. BLS Survey ■ Check patient responsiveness.
