Adult CPR is performed by checking for patient responsiveness, abnormal breathing, and contacting emergency services. Next, check for a pulse for 10 seconds max, and begin CPR if the patient has no pulse. Perform 30 compressions at a rate of 100-120 per minute and a depth of 2-2.4 inches in the center of the chest. These 30 compressions should be followed by two rescue breaths, and repeat the cycle until an AED or emergency services arrives.
