CPR Course - Adult (2 of 14)  

Before proceeding with CPR: 

  • Make sure you are not in any danger
  • Make sure the victim is not in danger
  • Avoid moving the victim unless there is an immediate danger or you are preparing for CPR
  • Assess the surroundings for anyone who can help
  • Make sure you are aware of your location (for example: floor in the building, etc), to help emergency responders locate you
  • Determine if the victim is conscious or unconscious by positioning yourself next to the victim, tapping him/her on the shoulder and shouting             "Are you OK? Are you OK?" several times
  • If no response, immediately ask someone to call 911 and then have the person report back to you.  If no one is available, call 911 yourself prior to beginning CPR
