Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a first aid method that could save lifesaving in many medical conditions. This can be performed for the people who succumbed to heart attack, breathing issues such as gasping, unconscious people with no apparent reason and stopped breathing.
This can be performed by anyone who is in the situation. Though there are many speculations that CPR should be performed by only the ones who are certified in it, there are many instances where people were saved by CPR performed by the individuals who had very basic knowledge about it.
As the popular notion, something is better than nothing, it is advisable for you to do something as per your knowledge on CPR to rescue the person rather than waiting for the medical support. When the heart stops pumping, the vital organs such as brain will not be provided with oxygen and nutrients. This lead to severe damage and the person may die in 8-10 minutes if not provided with oxygenated blood.
The compressions provided may reinitiate the heartbeat or pump the blood to the organs through blood vessels. So, next time you find yourself in a lifesaving situation, do not hesitate to perform CPR and here is how you could do it.
Know Your Level – Before proceeding to perform, just ask the people around you if there are any doctor, nurses or people who are CPR certified. If no one is there, here is your checklist to ensure to set a safe atmosphere to perform CPR.
Once you check the vital sign and they are negative, position yourself to perform CPR.
Remember the Compressions-Air-Breath (CAB) and do it as speed as you could. Also, ensure the chest compressions are subtle as too much pressure on the chest may cause physical damage and low pressure may not be effective. Ensure the compress of the chest is just about 2 inches (5 centimetres).
If you are tired, ask the bystanders of there are anyone who has the knowledge of CPR. Continue this till you see any physical sign of breathe restoration or till the medical help arrives and become a life saviour.
