CAB’s of CPR

CABs of CPR

Purpose

The CAB’s of CPR (Compressions, Airway, Breathing) is an educational program offering parents, teachers and caretakers the opportunity to learn and practice the techniques of CPR. This is NOT a certification class. The objective of the program is to educate the community on the importance of learning CPR and becoming CPR-certified.

Our goal as a healthcare system is to prevent accidents, injuries and deaths in our community, and the CAB’s of CPR program helps to do just that.

What We Teach

The CAB’s of CPR program provides 4th-12th graders with the basic and simple techniques of CPR.

CPR Made Simple

  • Check for responsiveness
  • Call 911 and begin 30 chest compressions and two breaths for adults, children and infants
  • Place heel of hand in center of chest, with your other hand on top (Heel of one hand for smaller child or two fingers on chest for infants)
  • Administer at least 100 compressions/minute
  • Adults - About 2-2.4 inches deep on the lower half of the breast bone
  • Children - About 2 inches deep on the lower half of the breast bone
  • Infants - About 1-1.5 inches deep, below the nipple line
  • IF ANYONE IS UNCOMFORTABLE DOING BREATHS, THEY CAN DO CONTINUOUS COMPRESSIONS ONLY FOR THE FIVE CYCLES REQUIRED. (30 Compressions X 5, which would be a total of 150 Compressions WITHOUT the breaths)
  • Adults and Children – Seal lips around mouth and pinch nose
  • Infants – Seal lips over mouth and nose
  • Give two breaths that make the chest rise; each breath lasting one second
  • Repeat compressions and continue five cycles of CPR
  • After five cycles, if the person is unresponsive, continue CPR
