Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and AED use

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use are critical life-saving skills. In cases of cardiac arrest, prompt action is crucial. Begin CPR immediately to maintain blood circulation and oxygen delivery to vital organs. CPR involves rhythmic chest compressions to pump blood throughout the body. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. CPR often includes rescue breaths to provide oxygen to the victim. Follow the recommended compression-to-ventilation ratio, usually 30 compressions to 2 breaths for adults. AEDs are portable devices that can analyze the heart's rhythm and deliver a shock if needed. Locate and use an AED if available as soon as possible. Modern AEDs provide clear voice and visual instructions. Anyone can use them effectively after minimal training. Before starting CPR, check for responsiveness and call for help by dialing emergency services or having someone else do so. The chain of survival in cardiac emergencies involves early recognition and activation of emergency services, immediate CPR, rapid defibrillation with an AED, advanced life support, and post-resuscitation care.
