CPR means Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and is performed by compressing the sternum (breast bone) deep and fast, without taking the hand off the chest. The chest should be compressed (for children and infants only, NOT for adults!)about a third (1/3) of the depth of the chest, and that means at least 2″ (up to 2.4″ or 6 cm) for adults, about 2″ for children, and about 1.5″ for infants. The correct speed of the compressions is between 100 and 120 times per minute, to be effective.

Based on the latest Guidelines established by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and 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. The breaths are optional. It is OK to do compressions-only for the first 4 minutes, if the rescuer witnessed the person going into cardiac arrest.

Bystander CPR (or hands-only CPR) is OK if someone wants to help, but does not feel comfortable to give breaths. Also, training for help in case of choking is always included.

AED (Automated External Defibrillation) should be used as soon as possible if a person becomes unconscious and suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The AED Certification enables each person who took the training to use an AED anywhere one is available.

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).
