ABC's of CPR

A airway
- Open airway
- Head tilt & chin lift

B breathing
- Maintain open airway
- Look, listen and feel
- If no normal breathing, give two 1 second breaths
C compressions
- Immediately begin providing chest compressions and ventilations

(Please note that these steps should be used with proper training.)

I recently took the American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid program. It was very informative. If you have not taken a CPR First Aid class, I highly recommend taking one. The certification class took about five hours and was well worth the time. Click here for AHA class finder, also check out your local YMCA.
