Recognize the Signs: The first step in cardiac arrest treatment is identifying the signs – unresponsiveness, absence of normal breathing, and no pulse.
Call 911: Dial emergency services immediately to ensure professional help arrives swiftly.
Start CPR: Begin chest compressions at a rate of 100-120 per minute to maintain blood flow.
Use an AED: If available, use an Automated External Defibrillator to shock the heart back into rhythm.
Administer Epinephrine: If trained, give epinephrine to support heart function.
Continue CPR: Perform CPR continuously until medical professionals arrive or the victim shows signs of recovery.
Provide Emotional Support: Offer reassurance to the victim and any witnesses, as emotional support can be crucial during this critical time.
