Welcome to the lesson on to rescue Aviles and children. In this video, we'll discuss step by step procedure for providing BLS in children with two rescuers. If you're not alone with a child, first, tap their shoulders and talk loudly to them to determine if they're responsive. then assess their breathing. If the child does not respond and is not breathing, or is only gasping for air, then send the second rescue were to call 911. And get an ad if you're not in a healthcare facility, or activate emergency response system and get a defibrillator.
If you are in a healthcare facility. Feel for the child's carotid pulse on the side of their neck, or femoral pulse on the inner thigh, in the crease between their leg and their growing field for no more than 10 seconds. If you cannot feel a pulse, or if you're unsure that you feel a pulse, begin CPR by doing 30 compressions followed by two breaths. If you can feel the pulse but the pulse rate is less than 60 beats per minute, begin CPR. This rate is too slow for a child. When the second rescuer returns, begin CPR by performing 15 compressions yourself.
And two breaths by the second rescuer. Use and follow the prompts on the Add or the defibrillator while continuing CPR until EMAS arrives or until child's condition normalizes. This concludes our lesson on to rescue or BLS and children. Next, we'll review one rescue or BLS in infants
