CPR - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

first_aid_news
Giving CPR in a real-world environment 
 
Advice for those who may need to give CPR in real-life situations has been published by The Resuscitation Council UK.  RCUK recommend that if you are concerned about contracting the virus, not to put your ear down to the mouth to check for breathing, but instead to look for signs of breathing/life. 

 

If concerned, give compressions only as this is much better than no CPR at all. 

 

It should be remembered that in the case of paediatric arrest or where there is a delayed ambulance response, not giving rescue breaths could significantly reduce chances of survival, compared to the (at present) unlikely risk of contracting COVID-19, which may only result mild symptoms if you are healthy.
