Check and Call





Effectiveness for adult CPR:

 Casualty is placed on a flat and firm surface
 Chest compression must be to a depth of at least 2 inches (5cm) but not greater than
2.4 inches (6cm)
 Rate of chest compression is 100-120 times/min
 Allow full recoil after each compression (do not lean on the chest between
 Minimise pauses in compressions
(Compressing the chest at an adequate rate and depth, allowing complete chest recoil after
each compression, minimizing interruptions in compressions, and avoiding excessive

Scan for sign of life (Look for no breathing or only gasping and check pulse simultaneously)
Head tilt chin lift (to open airway)

Normal breathing, has pulse No normal breathing, has pulse

Monitor until emergency responders
arrive  Provide rescue breathing,
1 breath every 3-5 seconds, or
about 12-20 breaths/min.
 Activate emergency response
system (if not already done) after

Difference between adult, children and infant CPR

Adult Children Infant

chest compression Why?
The infant chest is
significantly smaller
and using a whole hand
or two hands for
compression will cause
significant internal
damage to the infant.

Give only a small
amount of air or a
“puff” of air.
How much air exactly?
Enough to blow out a
single candle in front of
your mouth
The infants lungs are
significantly smaller
and too much air can
be detrimental to the
health of the infant
