Advanced CPR

– In the case of adults: the first thing to do is to ask the affected person if he/she is well and, if he/she does not respond, check if he/she is breathing -we can observe his/her chest to see if it rises and falls-; if he/she is not breathing, in addition to calling 112, we will begin cardiac massage by keeping the arms stretched out and pushing downwards. The hands are placed on the sternum, at the level of the center of the chest, and the frequency of compressions should be 100 per minute. The thorax should be lowered about five centimeters with each compression.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or cardiorespiratory resuscitation, abbreviated as CPR, is a set of temporary, standardized maneuvers designed to ensure oxygenation of vital organs when a person’s blood circulation stops, regardless of the cause of cardiorespiratory arrest.[1]Play multimedia content Video example of CPR

The main components of basic CPR are alerting emergency medical services in or outside the hospital, and using chest compressions (external cardiac massage, ECM) along with artificial respiration (artificial ventilation). Other elements that may be involved include automated external defibrillators[2] and the use of anti-choking maneuvers.

It has been shown that when CPR is performed by persons trained in the technique and initiated within minutes of cardiac arrest, these procedures can be effective in saving human lives.[2] The use of CPR can also save lives.

How long does a CPR course last?

The American Red Cross offers courses that combine different components of first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) use for infants, pediatric and adults. The training courses meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for first aid programs. The courses combine presentations, interactive video demonstrations that illustrate emergency situations that could occur in different locations, and hands-on training that allows participants to practice life-saving skills.

Courses last approximately 2 to 5.5 hours. Those with current First Aid, CPR and AED certification have the option to participate in abbreviated refresher courses. Probationary courses are also available for those who have experience with First Aid, CPR and AED skills. Those participating in probationary courses should come prepared to demonstrate their skills. There will be no practice time.  Participants must have gloves and wear a mask at all times.

The 7 steps of rcp

“Is there a doctor in the room?”. Many people have heard, or will hear, that phrase in their lifetime. And there isn’t always a doctor nearby. In the event of respiratory arrest or choking, the first few minutes are crucial, and it’s important to act quickly and not get overruled. Knowing how to perform correct Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the Heimlich maneuver to unblock the airway can save many lives.

Opening the airway. The forehead-chin maneuver should be performed: first, the victim is placed face up and one hand is placed on the forehead to hold the head back to extend the neck. At the same time, with the other hand, lift the chin and open the mouth with the fingertips.

Breathing check. Maintaining the forehead-chin maneuver, bring the ear close to the victim’s mouth to check if he/she is breathing. If he is not breathing or is breathing abnormally, call for help via 112 and start cardiac massage. If breathing is correct, the victim should be placed in the lateral recovery position.
