1) Call 911
– If others are with you, tell them to call 911 and find an AED.

2) Push hard and fast on chest
– If the person is unresponsive and not breathing normally, lie them on the floor face up.
– Place one hand on top of the other on the center of the chest.
– With straight arms, push HARD and FAST allowing the chest to come to a rest each time.
– Keep pushing until help arrives.

3) Use an AED
