Circulation: Is the person’s heart beating? Start chest compressions. Basic CPR and AED According to the AHA, CPR is not a single skill, but a series of assessments and interventions, and cardiac arrest is not just one problem, so the steps of CPR will vary depending on the type or cause of the arrest. For the purposes of this book, only lay-rescuer techniques and methods will be reviewed. It’s worthy to note that lay rescuers are no longer taught to check for pulse or signs of circulation or taught to provide rescue breathing without chest compressions for an unresponsive person.

Babies should never be left unattended in a bath or wading pool even for a second for you to answer the door or phone. Pick up the baby and take him with you! Always stay in the bathroom when you are filling a tub with water. Firearms need to be stored securely in a locked case, out of the reach of children.

Teach and emphasize to your children that guns are not toys and should never be touched or played with.

Open the airway using the head-tilt, chin-lift method— one hand on the forehead, fingers of the other hand under the bony part of the lower jaw, near the chin. Tilt the head back, gently lift the jaw, making sure not to close the mouth or push on soft parts beneath the chin. Avoid lifting the neck in the case of spinal injury. 2. Check for normal breathing by putting your ear to the person’s mouth and turning your head to look for chest movement, while listening for air flowing through the mouth or nose and trying to detect breath on your cheek.
