1. CALL

Check the victim for unresponsiveness. If the person is not responsive and not breathing or not breathing normally, call 911 and return to the victim. In most locations the emergency dispatcher can assist you with CPR instructions.

2. PUMP

Begin chest compressions. Push down in the center of the chest 2 inches and keep doing it. Pump hard and fast at the rate of at least 100/minute, faster than once per second.

CPR for children is similar to CPR for adults. The compression to ventilation ratio is 30:2. If you are alone with the child give 2 minutes of CPR before calling 911.

1) Use the heel of one or two hands for chest compression

2) Press the sternum approximately one-third the depth of the chest (about 2 inches) at the rate of least 100/minute

3) Tilt the head back and listen for breathing.  If not breathing normally, pinch nose and cover the mouth with yours and blow until you see the chest rise. Give 2 breaths.  Each breath should take 1 second.

Step 11. Shout and Tap

Shout and gently tap the child on the shoulder. If there is no response and not breathing or not breathing normally, position the infant on his or her back and begin CPR.

2. Give 30 Compressions

Give 30 gentle chest compressions at the rate of at least 100 per minute. Use two or three fingers in the center of the chest just below the nipples. Press down approximately one-third the depth of the chest (about 1 and a half inches).

Step 23. Open The Airway

Open the airway using a head tilt lifting of chin. Do not tilt the head too far back

Step 34. Give 2 Gentle Breaths

If the baby is not breathing or not breathing normally, cover the baby's mouth and nose with your mouth and give 2 gentle breaths. Each breath should be 1 second long. You should see the baby's chest rise with each breath.
