Trainees are taught to “push hard and push fast” during the CPR and AED training classes, with rescue breaths given after the first round of compressions is done. This is due to recent studies that revealed that compressions started within the first 3-5 minutes after collapse significantly raises the survival rates of victims of cardiac arrest. So instead of “look, listen, feel (for a pulse)”, the immediate steps must be “call for help” and “push hard and push fast”. The sooner a rescuer starts CPR the better. When the victim isn’t breathing start compression’s immediately.

Did You Know?
What happens in an anaphylactic reaction?
The cause of any allergic reaction is exposure to an allergen. Common allergens are food and insects such as peanuts, shrimp, and bee stings. In an anaphylactic reaction, the immune system of the body reacts harshly to these allergens, sending out a rush of chemicals in the body that causes blood pressure to drop and airways to swell, spasm, and narrow. This reaction is life-threatening.
- Medication (such as penicillin)
- Food (e.g. peanuts, shrimp, wheat, fish, shellfish, milk, and eggs)
- Insects (e.g. stings from bees, yellow jackets, wasps, hornets
Important note: If you’re allergic to shellfish, remember to inform your physician if you’re about to undergo an imaging diagnostic test that uses a dye. The dye used in imaging tests is made from shellfish.
Less common triggers:
- Latex (commonly used in gloves)
- Anesthetic medication used before surgery
