Determine Responsiveness, Activate EMS
When you observe a victim, the first thing to do is
determine if the he or she is conscious. To do this flick
the infant with your fingers, tap the bottoms the infant’s
feet and say loudly; “Are you okay?” If no response and
you are alone, begin the ABC’s and perform CPR or Rescue
Breathing for one minute if necessary. After one minute,
call 911 and return to your victim as quickly as possible.
If you are not alone have someone else activate EMS
immediately. Single someone out and instruct him or her to
“Call 911. Tell them we have an unconscious infant and
come back, do you understand?” If they do not respond, be
sure to send someone else.
