When the number of breaths — up to 2 in 10 seconds, should begin CPR. When the number of breaths — from 2 to 5, it is necessary to translate the human side in a stable position. Focus on the breaths, not the pulse, since the pulsation is not always possible to test, in a stressful situation is to take their own pulse in the tips of the fingers over the ripple of the victim. You need to call an ambulance as soon as you understand that the man needs help. CPR cannot be conducted if there is a heart rate, since heart massage will knock him down and lead to heart failure”.
