The best outcome for a victim is contingent on early recognition, quick action and notification of medical professionals. Compression depth and recoil should be monitored along with proper ventilation rates and technique to increase survival chances. AED can be life saving, so attempt to have one available as quickly as possible. CPR can be a scary process, but YOU are able to assist the victim. Remember C-A-B.
1. Compressions (100-120 per minute)
2. Airway (head-tilt and chin-lift)
3. Breathing (E-C clamp, barrier device)
