CPR health care first aid is an essential and vital skill that can save someone's life. There are two ways of giving CPR to save someone's life are pressing on the chest i.e. Compressions and providing breaths. The past puberty of any child is treated with adult CPR. CPR for children and infants require special considerations for CPR. If you are untrained in CPR, then give the "hands-only" CPR. When you give continuous compressions that are known as "hands-only" CPR. To deliver high-quality CPR, you must begin high-quality chest compressions quickly, as these are considered the most important factor in giving the person a chance to recover. Compressing the chest circulates blood to the brain and the heart. High-quality chest compressions are delivered at a rate between 100 to 120 beats per minute and at a depth between 2 to 2.4 inches(5 to 6 cm). Our education training material is created maintained by practicing physicians, adhering to the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) guidelines (2020-2025). This CPR for health care providers lets you know about health care law and ethics. For adult CPR:

  • Firstly make sure the scene and area around the person is safe.
  • Tap the person and talk loudly: "Are you okay?"
  • Yell for help. Use a cell phone to call 911 and send a bystander to get an AED.
  • Check the person's breathing.
  • If the person is not responding, breathing, or only gasping, start CPR.
  • Give 30 compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 beats per minute and at a depth between 2 to 2.4 inches (5 to 6 cm). Let the chest rise back up before you start your next compression.
  • Open the airway and give two breaths.

This book is really helpful for students like me, clear and concise.
So glad I found this book, it really helped a lot in my studies. Thanks a lot!
I love this book! This was my guide to pass CPR and I am still using it as reference.
This is one of the best first aid guides I have read. I was looking for a book that would give me with the standard steps I would need to take for a first aid applicable situation. This was just what I was looking for. The second section provides answers to medical problems such as breathing problems and stroke and what to do if in that situation. I am so thrilled I got this book and would recommended this to anyone looking for a easy to read guide on first aid.
