Two responders working on one child=15 compressions and 2 rescue breaths

One responder working on one adult=30 compressions and 2 rescue breaths

Infant choking=support the head, brace against a thigh, head below the chest, 5 back blows, flip and 5 chest thrusts

Upper right and lower left for AED patches.

V-tach, V-fib

Infant unresponsive, two responders=initial assessment, rescue breaths, brachial pulse.

“Defibrillator is analyzing, everyone stand clear!!!”

Yep, my mind is swimming.  But I passed night one of CPR/AED training. It’s coming back to me, even though it’s been about 3 years since my certification expired. Tomorrow night we go through O2 and more testing.  What a long day, but at least I survived, right?

Oh yeah, and I’m in a class of 9, the other 8 of which are teen lifeguards.  You can imagine how old I feel…


  1. This will be good for when the kids come over to my house and fall out the back door.

  2. I'm laughing at Carole's response :o)
    Well, RK, you can show those young whippersnappers how it's done.
