Adult CPR

  • 30:2 chest compressions to ventilations (breaths)
  • For two rescuers: change the compressor/ rescuer every 2 minutes, or every 5 cycles to avoid fatigue.

  • Recognition of cardiac arrest (no response and no breathing or only gasping breath)
  • Activation of EMS
  • Immediate CPR (chest compressions followed by breaths)
  • Rapid use of AED if available
