Online Healthcare Provider BLS Class - Re-assess and Recovery Position

Re-assessment

Starting with a pulse check, you should re-assess the victim after every 5 cycles of CPR (about 2 minutes) or after every 10 rescue breaths (about 1 minute of rescue breathing). If victim has no pulse, continue CPR. If victim had a pulse, check breathing. If victim has a pulse but is not breathing, provide 1 minute of rescue breathing (10 breaths) and re-assess. If breathing and circulation are present, re-assess the victim every 1-2 minutes.

Recovery Position

If you do not suspect spinal or cervical injury, place the victim on his or her side with their head resting on their shoulder as illustrated to the right. This will prevent the victim from aspirating any vomit and allow you to easily monitor for breathing and circulation.

If the victim is breathing and has a pulse, place victim in the recovery position
