What are the differences in CPR for an unconscious adult with a pulse and an unconscious adult without a pulse?
CPR for the lay person, denoted just CPR, there is no longer a pulse check for an adult, so once CPR is started, it will be continued unless the person begins to show signs of life. In CPR-FPR (CPR for the Professional Rescuer) there is still a circulation check, so RB at 1 breath / 5 seconds is part of that certification. To specifically answer your question, most people would do CPR and not check… Read More

There is some controversy. Some say five thrusts of the Heimlich maneuver should be performed if the person has been underwater and the person is unconscious followed by CPR if there is no pulse/breathing. Others say that if no pulse/breathing is present, CPR should be started immediately without any thrusts of the Heimlich. Check with local authorities to find out what is routinely done in your area.

The breathing rate and pulse rate are related proportionally. If the breathing rate increases, so does the pulse rate. The pulse rate is an indication of the breathing rate. Read More
You first call 911. They you lie them down. Loosen any restrictive clothing, monitor their breathing and pulse. keep them warm with a blanket.

When a person is unconscious (but breathing and pulse are present) they can be placed in the recovery position. There are a few aims for this, they are: 1. It is a comfortable position for the patient. 2. The airway can remain open (making breathing possible). 3. Any vomit can be drained from the mouth (the person will not choke on his/her vomit). 4. The person can not fall (as he/she is already on the… Read More
In my opinion, 200 feet of altitude, either higher or lower, from the normal baseline altitude of the person, will have little to no affect on breathing or pulse. Read More
Would you commence CPR if the patient losses consciousness is not breathing normally and not responsive?
You would only administer CPR if the person does not have a pulse or (at a slightly lower place on the chest) if you knew/believed the person was choking. Otherwise, if the person has a pulse but is not breathing, you should administer rescue breaths. Read More

Will there be any side effects to the person who CPR was preformed on even if he got pulse and respiration?
If you perform CPR on a person who is breathing and has a pulse, you would decrease the effectiveness of their own breaths & heart pumps. If a person is breathing and has a good pulse, during the check you should be able to determine the person has signs of life. In fact, if you try to perform CPR, they may resist. If the person is barley breathing and you do not determine they are… Read More
