clear airway breathing circulation © ERC

4 Chain of survival © ERC

5 What is resuscitation? resuscitation = emergency treatment to overcome the failure of breathing and circulation maintaining a clear airway breathing into the victim's lungs compressing the chest to make blood circulate round the body turning the victim onto his side (recovery position) © ERC

6 Minutes count when the heart stops, damage occurs to the brain within < 5 minutes start BLS early © ERC

7 CPR buys time BLS keeps the brain alive until an automated external defibrillator (AED) or professional help is available © ERC

8 Check safety © ERC

9 Check response © ERC

10 Shout for help © ERC

11 Tilt head back Remove obstructions from mouth Lift chin

12 Check for breathing © ERC

13 Raise the alarm © ERC

14 Pinch nose © ERC

15 Deliver two rescue breaths

16 Allow air to come out © ERC

17 Check for signs of a circulation

18 Locate rib cage © ERC

22 Recovery position unresponsive victims who are breathing
keeps the airway open © ERC

23 BLS Algorithm © ERC 2004-09 Shake and shout Head tilt/Chin lift
Shake and shout Head tilt/Chin lift If breathing: Recovery position Look, listen, and feel 2 effective breaths Signs of a circulation Check circulation every minute 100 per minute 15:2 ratio © ERC

24 Transmission of infection
no documented cases of serious infection after rescue breathing use a face shield or a face mask when appropriate © ERC

25 Equipment face shield face mask © ERC

26 Using a face mask © ERC
