CPR – Simple steps to save a life – Animated Explanation Video – Health Sketch

Hello, in this HealthSketch,
we want to talk to you about CPR, which stands for
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation We use CPR when someone has
collapsed and is not breathing because it can keep people alive until
emergency services arrive. Learning these simple life-saving
skills is as easy as ABC all you have to remember
is the ‘Doctor’s ABC’. D is for Danger First, look around carefully
to make sure the area is safe for yourself and others before approaching R is for Response Shake them gently by the shoulders
and ask them loudly “Are you alright?”
If there is no response, you need to… S: Shout for help,
as any assistance will be helpful A is for Airway Gently tilt the head back like this,
to open up the airway. B is for Breathing Look, Listen and Feel
for signs of normal breathing: Look for normal chest movements, Listen for normal breathing sounds and
try to Feel their breath against your face Do this for no more than 10 seconds. If there is no sign of breathing,
or if they are breathing in an unusual, noisy way,
we need to start CPR. First, make sure that an
ambulance is on its way. If you have someone else with you,
ask them to make the call. Putting the phone on speaker
mode is useful as the ambulance service can talk you
through the steps. C is for Circulation: Circulation means the flow of blood around the body,
and when the heart stops pumping, we need to take over this role
by pushing down hard and fast on the chest. Start by placing the heel of one hand at the centre of the
person’s chest and interlock your fingers like this With arms straightened, press down hard and fast,
letting the chest come back up fully each time Fast means around 2 times every second and hard means that the chest needs to go
down by about 5 centimetres. This might sound a lot but you do need to
push hard for it to be effective. If you have been trained, you can give 2 ‘rescue breaths’
after every 30 compressions, as this helps provide some oxygen. However, if you have not been
trained or are not comfortable, just keep going with ‘Hands-only’
continuous chest compressions If someone else is with you,
swap over if you begin to feel tired, and don’t stop until either a health professional
takes over, or the person is definitely breathing normally Sometimes, we can add another step – ‘D’. D is for Defibrillation, which is about delivering
a shock to restart the heartbeat. Some public areas and workplaces
have an easy-to-use defibrillator on site, called an Automatic External Defibrillator, or AED Automatic means that it is the machine that decides
what to do, so you can’t go wrong, and it even talks you through the steps. If there is no AED available, keep going
with CPR until the ambulance arrives. That’s it! So to recap:
remember DR’S ABC and if you have it, D. That’s D for Danger, R for Response.
S:Shout for help, A for Airway, B for Breathing, C for Circulation
and D for Defibrillation. In this HealthSketch, we’ve shown you the simple steps
you can take to help someone who has collapsed, is not breathing, or not breathing normally. Why not take a training course to practice these steps. Share this video with friends and family

    Maybe I am wrong but I find pretty dangerous give mouth to mouth resuscitation cuz you don’t know if the other person is carrying some infectious disease or something, so I am sorry but i won’t do it.

    Thank you for the effort. As a BLS instructor, I'd advise to follow the below approach [6 steps];

    First; we must ensure scene safety. Always, your safety comes first.

    Second; we tap the shoulders of the patient. We don't shake patients!

    Third; if no response after tapping shoulders, we should check for pulse and breathing for no more than 10 seconds

    Fourth; after 10 seconds, no pulse no breathing (or gasping); we call for help, activate the emergency response in place and call for AED

    Fifth; Then we use the sequence of C-A-B; it is no longer A-B-C since 2010!

    We start with compression first and then we go open airway and give 3 breaths! (30 compressions : 2 ventialtions)

    Sixth; Once AED arrived, attach its pads to patient bare chest and follow instructions
