SAFE & HYGIENIC SALON PRACTICES CARDIO PULMONARY RESUSCITATION ASSESSMENT REVISION What is CPR?

A “Holding Exercise”
Signs and Symptoms of Heart Attack Persistent, vice like central chest pain, often spreading to the jaw and down one or both arms. Pain is unlikely to ease. Breathlessness, and discomfort occurring high in the abdomen similar to severe indigestion. Collapse often without further warning. Sense of impending doom. “Ashen” skin and cynoptic lips.

A = AIRWAY IT CAN BE AS EASY AS A- B- C: A - AIRWAY Place Place victim flat on his/her back on a hard surface. Shake victim at the shoulders and shout "are you okay?" If no response, call emergency medical services then, Head-tilt/chin-lift - open victims' airway by tilting their head back with one hand while lifting up their chin with your other hand.
B = BREATHING Position your cheek close to victims' nose and mouth, look toward victims' chest, and Look, listen, and feel for breathing (5-10 seconds) If not breathing, pinch victim's nose closed and give 2 full breaths into victim's mouth (use microshield if available). If breaths won't go in, reposition head and try again to give breaths.
C = CIRCULATION C - CIRCULATION Visually check for any signs of circulation and recovery. If there is no signs of circulation, begin chest compressions as follows: Place heel of one hand on lower part of victim's sternum. With your other hand directly on top of first hand, Depress sternum 1.5 to 2 inches. Perform 15 compressions to every 2 breaths. (rate: 80-100 per minute) check for return of pulse every minute.
