You do not check for signs of circulation as a first aider, if they are not breathing then you perform 30 compresions at a rate of 100/minute followed by 2 rescue breaths regardless of whether they have signs of circulation (In a chilld you would also perform 5 rescue breaths before you start CPR). this is because even if they have circulation, if they're not breathing then they won't have circulation for long and CPR will do less harm than thinking there are signs of circulation when there aren't and not performing CPR.

What is the correct rates for compressions to breaths for 2 rescuer CPR in the presence of an advanced airway?

The only difference an advanced airway would make is that you no longer have to discontinue compressions after every 30 to administer rescue breaths. You can continue compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, and give the rescue breaths with your BVM without pausing after every 30 compressions.

What will you do to prevent performing CPR on victim that has only fainted?

Check to see if they have a pulse, or are breathing. If they have both, no CPR is needed. If they have a pulse but aren't breathing, you can perform rescue breathing only without chest compressions. If they do not have a pulse and aren't breathing, you perform rescue breathing and chest compressions.

What is the ratio for doing CPR on a child?

These are the most recent PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) Guidelines: When there is only one rescuer, which is often the case in CPR done outside the hospital, the chest compression to rescue breaths ratio is 30:2 (30 chest compressions, 2 breaths) just like it is for an adult. When there are two rescuers, as in, one person that can do compressions and one that can do breaths, the ratio changes to 15:2. In a hospital setting, when the infant or child is intubated (breathing tube down the throat), chest compressions are done continuously without interruption, while another provider at the same time gives rescue breaths with an ambu-bag down the breathing tube, at a rate of one breath every 6 to 8 seconds. This last method would only ever be done by health care providers.

How to perform CPR on an unconscious person?

by unconscious i hope you mean unconscious-not breathing, as it will be fatal to do CPR on a breathing casualty. any way for an adult unconscious not breathing: you should follow your DRABC (danger, responses, airways, breathing, circulation/CPR). once you've checked for danger, you check for responses from the casualty, call for help, check for breathing, send someone to get an ambulance and an AED (defibrillator), you should then carry on starting with chest compressions at a depth of 5-6cm and at a rate of (30/2). with help this should be maintained for 6 cycles/2mins, without help; 3 cycles/1 min and then go for help. for child the same however you start off with 5 initial rescue breaths before going onto 30:2, whilst also using only 1 hand, and a third the depth of adult compressions. for infants the same as child, however using 2 fingers and when going for help the infant should be carried with you.

In basic life support what is the rate of compressions?

The current guidelines state 30:2, that is 30 compressions to two rescue breaths. This is due to new research being released that shows the first 7-10 compressions are used to overcome the arterial compliance that causes the vessels to close without blood flow and to reopen them, hence the raise from 15:2 to 30:2. -- Note, whilst ratio according to AHA/RCUK 2005 guidelines is 30:2, that is the radio of compressions to ventilations. The compressions should be delivered at a rate of 100/minute

What is rescue breathing?

Mouth-to-mouth resuscitaton (or rescue breathing) is when a person breathes into the mouth and/or nose of an unconscious patient. This will allow the lungs to refill with oxygen. When the heart is compressed (by doing CPR), rescue breathing will help to ensure that there is enough oxygen in the body, so that all the organs and tissues will be supplied with enough oxygen to sustain life. Cardio Pulmonrary Resusciation (CPR) is a method of returning circulation to a body whose heart is not functioning. Although CPR is now sometimes done without rescue breathing and relies on the lung's vacuum process during chest compressions to partially fill the lungs with air, chest compressions remain necessary to spread the oxygenated blood to body tissues and cells.

Who holds the record for the longest time without breathing?

The world record for the longest time between breaths was 22 minutes. It was set by Stig Severinsen from Denmark in 2012.

What devices or techniques is not recommended for a single rescuer to provide breathes during CPR?

I assume this is a test question. Shame, shame. :) Unless the rescuer is trained with proper equipment, simply provide compressions. Do not stop for breaths as it is more effective without them.

What do you do if a firm base is not available for chest compressions?

You must find a firm base to do compressions for CPR. Without a firm base, the compressions are not effective. Hence, for example, you can't do CPR in the water. Use any materials around for a firm base such as a plywood.

How does high altitude affect your breathing?

There's less oxygen at high altitudes like on Mount Everest (still a far way from the ozone layer) and the body's physiological response is to speed up breathing. For people who have climbed Mount Everest without oxygen tanks, they describe breathing as exhausting as they have to draw breaths at incredibly high frequencies and they exhaust their diaphragms like any other muscle.
