New guidelines for CPR
Start chest compressions
- Place the heel of your hand on the center of the victim's chest.
- Put your other hand on top of the first with your fingers interlaced.
- Press down compressing the chest 2 inches in adults and children.
- Press down compressing 1.5 inches in infants.
- Do compressions 100 times a minute.
- That is about the same rhythm as the beat of the Bee Gee's song "Stayin' Alive."
- Keep doing the compression until 911 arrives.
If you're been trained in CPR:
- Open the airway with a head tilt and chin lift.
- Pinch the victim’s nose closed. Take a normal breath, cover the victim's mouth with yours to create an airtight seal and then give two, one-second breaths as you watch for the chest to rise.
- Do 30 compressions to two breaths until help arrives.
