Guidance to first aiders for adult CPR

Check for responsiveness by shouting and shaking. Look, listen, and feel for normal breathing.

Early defibrillation is required, so don't delay in calling the emergency services, or using one if it is available.

If the First Aider has access to gloves, then these should be donned before starting CPR.  Either a pocket mask or face shield should ideally be used when giving rescue breaths.  However, compression only CPR is still helping the patient until the ambulance arrives.

After providing CPR the First Aider should, as soon as possible, correctly dispose of PPE., wash their hands with soap and water.

Guidance to first aiders for child CPR

Following on from Adult CPR, the modification for child is:

5 rescue breaths first, then 30 compressions to 2 rescue breaths thereafter.

As a cardiac arrest in children is more likely to be caused by a respiratory problem it is vital that rescue breaths are given during CPR

"I have learned the correct techniques within first aid. I found the course very helpful to me."
