-in electric shock
-no breathing or difficulty breathing
-no pulse
-unconsciousness When You Might Need to Perform What To Do Check for a response What Not to Do Supplies Needed By: Sydney Beckman and Lauren Tritch CPR Other Names for CPR Cardiopulmonary resuscitation Bibliography When to Perform CPR Where in the World Percents 70% of Americans feel helpless to act during cardiac arrest because they don't know how to do CPR Prevention Get plenty of exercise Certified? Everyone should know how to do CPR because it can happen at any time Long Term Effects Check the scene -make sure it is safe to help the person and that you won't become a victim too Check the person
-if the person is conscious, they do not need CPR If there is no breathing, CPR is needed http://www.cprdude.com/cpr-when.shtml These can be caused by
-drug overdose
-excessive bleeding
-heart disease
-infection in the bloodstream
-injuries and accidents If there is no response, call 911 Perform chest compressions Open the airway Look, listen, and hear for breathing Repeat and continue until help comes or the person regains consciousness CPR http://health.nytimes.com/health/guides/injury/cpr-adult/overview.html CPR isn't a disease and can happen to anyone anywhere To do CPR, you really should be certified, though Many places offer online classes or you can check your community's City Hall for classes 88% of cardiac arrests occur at home 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR help from a bystander CPR & SCA Fact Sheet http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/CPRAndECC/WhatisCPR/CPRFactsandStats/CPR-Statistics_UCM_307542_Article.jsp See your doctor regularly Always use seat belts and drive safely Avoid use of illegal drugs Do not smoke Rescue breathing and chest compressions Resuscitation All these different names are for adult CPR Considerations CPR can be lifesaving but it's best if someone certified performs it Considerations Continued Death can occur 4 to 6 minutes after becoming unconscious New technique that emphasizes compression over rescue breathing and airway Permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes without oxygen Starting CPR before help comes creates a larger chance of survival for the patient Find an AED if you are in a public place to help you Don't loose contact with the patient's chest
during compressions-meaning don't let your hands bounce on the persons chest, keep them steady Don't bend your arms Don't move too fast or too slow Only use one hand for children under the age of 8 Don't forget to call 911! Don't "do nothing" Hands- to pump on their heart Mouth-to blow air into their lungs Phone- to call 911 Defibrillator-(if you have one) to get the heart going again CPR mask- instead of putting your mouth on theirs while blowing air into their mouth Heart failure Irregular heartbeats Could even result in death
