					    CPR Introduction
A High School beginners guide to
              CPR
How Do I get Certified?
 Certification for CPR and First Aid is easy to obtain! Just find
  your local American Red Cross center and sign up for the
  basic training coarse!
The first important steps in giving
            CPR are….
          The three C’s!!
Is the scene safe?
   Check for anything unsafe, such as spilled chemicals, traffic,
   fire, and other hazardous items.
   Are you putting yourself in danger by helping this person?
   Make sure you are also taking care of yourself!
   Is there anyone around who can also help? Ask others around
   the scene for as much help as they can offer!
Calling for help is often the most important action you can take
  to help an ill or injured person.
 Call 911 or the local emergency number (If there are other
  people at the scene, ask someone else to call for you to help!)
 Make sure you give the 911 operator the correct
  information about your location, the emergency, and any
  other information you are able to give about the emergency!
Once you have followed the first two C’s, you may need to give
 care until EMS personnel arrive. Follow these guidelines:
 Do no further harm.
 Monitor the person’s breathing and conciousness.
 Help the person rest in the most comfortable position.
 Keep the person from getting chilled or overheated.
 Reassure the person.
 Give any specific care needed.

Important things you need to know about Infant CPR!
 Checking for conciousness on a baby is different from an
  adult or child, you must tap their foot.

  signs of life.
 Give 5 rescue breaths then listen for signs of life. Follow
  with 30 chest compressions with only 2 fingers and not as
  much force.

 are choking and not able to cough, speak, or breathe.
Step 1
Check scene, then check person.
Step 2
Have someone call 9111
Step 3
Obtain Consent to care for the person.

  your hand.
Step 5
Give 5 quick, upward abdominal thrusts.
