Flash Card 8
If the victim is not breathing normally, then commence CPR by first giving two breaths that last one second each. Be sure to:
1) Pinch the victim’s nose for efficiency.
2) Watch the victim’s chest rise as you give each breath.
When giving CPR you must give the victim breaths that make the chest rise. Before giving breaths, you must open the airway with the head tilt-chin lift.
Your breaths give oxygen to the victim who cannot breathe on his own.
