CPR Training and Certification Classes Nashville – Compressions Technique for Adult Victim Video Clip 4

CPR training can seem difficult, but it is my goal to ease the learning process. In this clip, we’ll discuss CPR Compressions technique for an Adult Victim.

Compressions are the most important part of CPR.

Compressions = Pushing Hard + Pushing Fast on the Chest.

When you push on the chest, you pump blood to the brain and heart.

Here are the steps to follow:
1. Make sure the person is lying flat on his back on a firm, flat surface.
2. Move clothes out of the way.
3. Put the heel of your hand on the lower half of the breastbone.
4. Put the heel of your second hand on top of the first hand.
5. Push straight down at least 2 inches at a rate of 100 compressions/min or faster
6. After each compression, let the chest come back to it’s normal position.

My husband and I hired Precious Hearts to come teach us CPR in our home and we had a WONDERFUL experience! Grace is a fantastic teacher and we learned so much. She had all the proper equipment for us to get lots of practice, she gave lots of real-world examples, and overall she made the process really fun and positive. Our nanny came for the 2nd half of the class and she reviewed the CPR and choking rescue procedures with her as well. I sleep better at night knowing that we received great training and I would HIGHLY recommend Precious Hearts for anyone considering CPR training. Thank you Precious Hearts Team!
