First Aid GC > Blog > education > Quick Tips for Effective CPR

QUICK TIPS FOR PROVIDING CPR:

  • 30 COMPRESSIONS: 2 RESCUE BREATHS @ RATE OF 100-120 COMPRESSIONS PER MINUTE (APPROXIMATELY 2 PER SECOND)
  • DEPTH = 1/3 OF CHEST WALL (APPROXIMATELY LENGTH OF CASUALTY’S THUMB)
  • 5 CYCLES IN 2 MINUTES (COUNT COMPRESSIONS & CYCLES OUT LOUD)
  • PLACE THE HEAL OF ONE HAND ON THE LOWER HALF OF THE CASUALTY’S STERNUM
  • PLACE THE OTHER HAND ON TOP, INTERLOCKING FINGERS AROUND WRIST
  • BOTH ARMS SHOULD REMAIN LOCKED WITH BODYWEIGHT OVER CASUALTY
  • MINIMISE INTERRUPTIONS TO COMPRESSIONS (QUICK RESCUE BREATHS, NO PULSE CHECKS)
  • RATIO OF COMPRESSIONS TO RESCUE BREATHS REMAIN THE SAME REGARDLESS OF AGE.
