Try to save a life.

Not only can you be a normal bypasser, you can actually help! When you notice that someone is not breathing did you know that you can perform CPR to try to prolong their life, until professional help gets there and do their job. The first step is to make sure the person is on a flat surface, then give 30 chest compressions, in the middle of the chest, not too much pressure. Then give two rescue breaths,tilt the head back, pinch the nose and make sure your mouth is covering the other mouth and breath until the chest rises. After doing these two steps you can repeat until further instructions. Click here for printable instructions CPR . Another method is the heimlich maneuver for ADULTS, babies, dogs and other animals have different procedures to go by.

  • From behind, wrap your arms around the victim’s waist.
  • Make a fist and place the thumb side of your fist against the victim’s upper abdomen, below the ribcage and above the navel.
  • Grasp your fist with your other hand and press into their upper abdomen with a quick upward thrust. Do not squeeze the ribcage; confine the force of the thrust to your hands.
  • Repeat until object is expelled.
