Help! Open Airway A Normal Breathing?

Call 999/112 Now Give 30 chest compressions, then 2 rescue breaths.
Continue giving cycles of 30 compressions to 2 rescue breaths.
Only stop to recheck the casualty if they start to wake up AND start breathing normally.
If there is more than one rescuer, change over every 1 - 2 minutes to prevent fatigue. YES NO NO NO 30
2 D R A B Danger Response Airway Breathing Normally? WARNING:

“In the first few minutes after cardiac arrest, a casualty may be barely breathing, or taking infrequent, noisy gasps. These are known as ‘agonal’ gasps, and should not be confused with normal breathing.”

If you are in doubt, start CPR. First Aiders can use the adult sequence of resuscitation on a child or baby who is unresponsive and not breathing. Child and baby CPR Child and baby CPR The following minor modifications to the adult sequence will, however, make it even more suitable for use in children: Give five initial rescue breaths before starting chest compressions Compress the chest by about one-third of its depth: For a babyunder 1 year, use two fingers For a child over 1 year,use one or two hands to achieve an adequate depth If you are on your own, perform resuscitation for about 1 minute before going for help Vomiting Gurgling noises when giving rescue breaths?
