Position two fingers in the centre of baby’s chest and give 30 compressions at a rate of approximately 100 per minute. Each compression should depress the chest by about one third.
Tilt the baby’s head back very slightly with the chin lifted to bring the tongue away from the back of the throat, opening her airway. Take a breath and seal her mouth and nose with your mouth. Blow gently and steadily for about one second. Watch for the rise and fall of the chest. Take another breath and repeat the sequence.
Continue giving 30 compressions followed by 2 breaths until medical help arrives. If the child starts breathing and responding, turn them into the recovery position (see image 3), however, continue to monitor breathing and be prepared to recommence CPR again at any time.
