Good with a few details missing As stated below, you should take training, but, as they say in training that it is sometimes better to break a rib (which can happen if CPR is done correctly anyways) and save a life, than to do nothing and assure death. Proper order: 1. check for danger 2. check for response 3. shout for help 4. check for breathing 5. shout for ambulance and Defibrillator 6 start compressions (30 then 2 breaths repeat) 7. If no help arrives after 2 sets (5 for child) call emerge Rate of compression is 100 per minute. May seem corny, but sing the Star Spangled Banner in your head and compress on the beat. Don't forget to let the chest come back up b4 compressing again. Also, hand placement in video is correct, but voice says between the nipples. It is actually slightly below. Concerning checking for response, yes, the latest advice is to do compressions if the person is unresponsive. Latest courses don't even say to check for pulse, because most people are bad at checking, and don't know proper rate anways. Also, when giving breaths, tilt the head back to clear the airway, unless it appears there may be head/spinal injury. Compressions are the most important part anyways.
Proper way to do it Good to be on video but at least doit properly 1 check for danger 2 check for response 3 shout for help 4 check for breathing 5 shout for ambulance and defib 6 start compressions 30 7 2 rescue breaths 8 work on for 2 mins if help aint arrived get help yourself and continue I rate 1 star
Missing things And what happens if it is a heroin overdose ? There resps are around 2 - 4 resps per minute. This is commonly mistaken for an arrest. So you don't use cpr only breaths, and you keep the oxygen constant until further help arrives. Also for a cardiac arrest you concentrate only on chest compressions. If the airway isnt secure you are wasting time on breaths, thats how I was trained and its more successful. Leave the securing the airway for the paramedic
Julie This is a great app, especially for those of us who do not know every little correct detail as those of you in the medical profession would know but hey at least its something and that's always better than just doing nothing. I for one install this app everytime I upgrade so thank you to the people who provided this for the non medical professionals.
Current Method Methods have changed. This seems to be the method taught in 2014.
Very well done Very easy to use and informative. Haven't had to use it yet and hope I don't have to, but it's definitely a good app to use in an emergency.
