CPR means Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and is performed by compressing the sternum (breast bone) deep and fast, without taking the hand off the chest. “Deep” means the chest should be compressed about a third (1/3) of the depth of the chest for children and infants (but NOT for adults!), and that means at least 2″ (but no more than 2.4″ or 6 cm) for adults, about 2″ for children, and about 1.5″ for infants. “Fast” in this case means between 100 and 120 times per minute, to be effective. Training for help in case of choking is always included.

Based on the latest Guidelines published by the American Heart Association, the compressions need to be done as sets of 30 compressions (pumps, down and up), followed by two breaths (the breaths should take less than 5 seconds), then 30 compressions, two breaths, 30 compressions, two breaths, and so on, until the Paramedics (EMT) arrive and take over. However, the breaths are optional.

If someone doesn’t feel comfortable to give breaths, compressions-only is acceptable.

AED (Automated External Defibrillation) can help an unconscious person come back to life by “jump-starting” the heart, if it is used as soon as possible. According to the Guidelines, for every minute an AED is not used, the chances of the person to be saved are diminished by 10%.  The AED Certification enables each person who took the training to use an AED anywhere one is available, if a person becomes unconscious and suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

The AED Certification is bundled together with the CPR and BLS (Basic Life Support for the Health Care and Professional Rescuers, also called Professional CPR).
