Lifesaving Simplified: A Beginner's Guide to CPR

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a critical skill that can save lives in emergencies involving sudden cardiac arrest. This beginner's guide provides a straightforward approach to understanding and performing CPR, empowering you with knowledge that could make a crucial difference in critical situations.

Understanding CPR

CPR combines chest compressions and rescue breaths to keep blood and oxygen circulating through the body when the heart stops beating. It's a temporary measure to sustain life until professional medical help arrives.

Step 1: Ensure Safety

Before administering CPR, ensure the scene is safe. Check for any potential hazards to you or the victim.

Step 2: Check Responsiveness

Gently tap the person's shoulder and shout, "Are you okay?" to check for responsiveness. If there's no response, call for emergency services immediately.

Step 3: Position the Person

Lay the person flat on their back on a firm surface. Kneel beside their chest.

Step 4: Perform Chest Compressions

Place the heel of one hand on the center of the person's chest, and place your other hand on top. Keep your elbows straight and shoulders directly above your hands. Use your body weight to compress the chest at least 2 inches deep at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Allow the chest to rise fully between compressions.
