Basic First Aid

A Couple of First Aid Basics:

Normal human temperature: 98.6

Heat Exhaustion: Above 104.0

Hypothermia: Below 95.0

30 compressions, 2 breaths.  Babies and children are the same, but use only 1 hand for child and 2 fingers for infant. 

Point of interest…
Our CPR class teacher recommended we used either the song “Staying Alive” or “Another One Bites the Dust” (LOL!)  to help you do compressions accurately.  Just sing the song in your head and keep time with it. :-)

I guess the person you’re administering the CPR to would determine which song you sing
