The ratio of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation chest compressions to breaths is 30.2. Between every 30 chest compressions, deliver 2 rescue breaths.

For everyone, we teach "1/3 the depth of the chest" knowing that your child could be 1 or 8 years of age.Text book would say 1.5 - 2 inches (4-5 cm)

Why is it 15 compressions with 2 rescuers on infants?

It isn't, and this is in fact incorrect.The correct procedure for infants and children is to start with 5 rescue breaths before chest compressions are even given. Once the 5 rescue breaths have been given the normal ratio of chest compressions to rescue breaths should be given (30/2).It should also be noted that the depth should be changed to a third of the depth of an adult for child and infant casualties. And of course child-1 hand, infant-2 fingers.

How do you know when to start cycles of chest compressions?

For an adult, once it is determined no signs of life exist, and 2 initial breaths are given, you then start compressions. For an Infant and Child, after the 2 breaths perform a pulse check, and if there is no pulse, start compressions.
