How to perform CPR on adult?


CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a lifesaving technique that can be used to revive someone whose heart has stopped beating. To perform CPR, follow these steps:

  1. Check the person’s airway, breathing, and pulse. If the person is not breathing and has no pulse, call 999 or your local emergency number and begin CPR.

  2. Kneel down beside the person and place the heel of one hand on the center of their chest, with the other hand on top of the first hand.

  3. Interlock your fingers and press down firmly and quickly, compressing the chest about 2 inches (5 cm) for adults and 1.5 inches (4 cm) for children.

  4. Give 30 compressions at a rate of about 100 to 120 compressions per minute.

  5. Open the person’s airway by tilting their head back and lifting their chin. Pinch the person’s nose shut and give two breaths into the person’s mouth.

  6. Repeat compressions and breaths until the person starts breathing on their own, an AED arrives, or professional help arrives.

Note: It is always recommended that you take a CPR course, which will provide you with hands-on practice and more detailed instructions.
