CPR St. Louis Teaches High Quality CPR
Here are some key bullet points to achieving high quality CPR:
• Begin compressions within 10 seconds of cardiac arrest
• Push hard and fast! At least 100 compressions/minute AND at least 2 inches deep with complete chest recoil.
• Minimize interruptions between compression to less than 10 seconds
• Make sure chest rises when giving breaths
• Avoid excessive ventilation – it could cause gastric (stomach) inflation which could lead to aspiration or vomiting.
