CONTINUE WITH 2 BREATHS AND 15 PUMPS UNTIL HELP ARRIVES
NOTE: This ratio is the same for one-person & two-person CPR. In two-person CPR the person pumping the chest stops while the other gives mouth-to-mouth breathing.
For the Child...
CPR for Children (Ages 1-8)
CPR for children is similar to performing Quick CPR for adults. There are, however, 4 differences.
1) If you are alone with the child give one minute of CPR before calling 911
2) Use the heel of one hand for chest compressions
3) Press the sternum down 1 to 1.5 inches
4) Give 1 full breath followed by 5 chest compressions
For the infant...
CPR for Infants (Age <1)
Shout and Tap
Shout and gently tap the child on the shoulder. If there is no response, position the infant on his or her back
Open The Airway
Open the airway using a head tilt lifting of chin. Do not tilt the head too far back.
Give 2 Gentle Breaths
If the baby is NOT breathing give 2 small gentle breaths. Cover the baby's mouth and nose with your mouth. Each breath should be 1.5 to 2 seconds long. You should see the baby's chest rise with each breath.
Give 5 Compressions
Give five gentle chest compressions at the rate of 100 per minute. Position your 3rd and 4th fingers in the center of the chest half an inch below the nipples. Press down only 1/2 to 1 inches.
Repeat with 1 breath and 5 compressions. After one minute of repeated cycles call 911 and continue giving breaths and compressions.
