The compression-to-breaths ratio for 2-rescurer child CPR is?

15:2(15 compressions to 2 breaths)

The depth of chest compressions for an adult victim should be at least?

2 inches (5 cm)

After the airway is opened, what is the proper technique for delivering moth-to-mouth ventilation?

The rescuer opens the airway, seals his or her mouth over the victim's mouth, pinches the victim's nose closed & gives 2 breaths while watching for the chest to rise.

When administering breaths by using a bag-mask device for a child who is not breathing but does have a pulse, what should the rescuer do?

Give breaths at a rate of 1 breath every 3 to 5 seconds

If a victim of foreign body airway obstuction becomes unresponsive, the rescuer should send someone to activate the emergency response system & immediately do what?

Start CPR, beginning with compressions.

In 2 rescuer CPR, while the first rescuer begins chest compressions, what should the second rescuer do?

Maintain an open airway and give ventilations.

When should the rescuer initially ensure the scene is safe?

When the rescuer first sees the potential victim.

After you identify an unresponsive victim with no breathing (or no normal breathing) and no pulse, chest compressions should be initiated (started) within how long?

10 seconds

The 2010 AHA Guidelines for CPR and ECC recommended that to identify cardic arrest in an unresponsive victim with no breathing ( or no normal breathing), a healthcare provider should check a pulse for no more than..

10 seconds

Durning bag-mask ventilation, what is recommended to minimize the risk of gastric inflation?

Give a breath just until you see the chest rise.

The compression-to-ventilation ratio for 1-rescuer adult CPR is?

30:2(30 chest compressions to 2 breaths)

The compression-to-ventilation ratio for 2-rescuer infant CPR is?

15:2(15 chest compressions to 2 breaths)

As soon as an AED becomes available, what is the first step the rescuer should perform to operate the AED?

Turn on the AED.

What is the recommended depth of chest compressions for an infant?

At least one third the depth of the chest, approximately 1.5 inches.

Why is it important to compress to the appropriate depth during CPR?

Adequate depth of compression is needed to create blood flow during compressions.

What type of victim needs CPR?

A victim who is unresponsive with no normal breathing and no pulse.

The rescuer knows the rescue breath for an infant victim is effective when...

The chest rises visibly.

After the AED delivers a shock, the rescuer should do what?

Immediately restart CPR, beginning with chest compressions.

When a child has a heart rate greater than 60 per minute and a pulse but is NOT breathing effectively, the rescuer should do what?

Give breaths without chest compressions.

What is the correct compression and ventilation rates for 2-rescuer CPR in the presence of an advanced airway?

Compress at the rate of AT LEAST 100 per minute, 1 breath every 6 to 8 seconds.

What ventilation device/technique is NOT recommended for a single rescuer to provide breaths during CPR?

Bag-mask device.
