Cardiac Arrest & CPR

Cardiac arrest is a very serious condition where a patient does not have any pulse. When you discover someone to be in cardiac arrest, it is crucial that you (1) apply tourniquets on any injured limbs, (2) bandage their head and torso, and (3) perform CPR until the patient regains a pulse or a medic relieves you.

It is recommended to control the patient's pulse after every 2 rounds of CPR to make sure you aren't performing CPR on a patient that already has a pulse.

Note: Checking a patient's pulse when someone is performing CPR will produce a false positive.
