If you are alone and attempting to perform CPR, make sure the victim is face up, on a hard, flat surface. Cover that hand with your other hand and lock your arms in a straight position. Each chest compression should be delivered forcefully and quickly. The chest should depress 2 to 2. Likewise, the chest should fully recoil in between compressions. You will need to provide to chest compressions per minute and chest compressions should continue until an AED is attached, powered up, and ready to go or EMS arrives and takes over in the resuscitation.
Objective: Optimal chest compression to ventilation ratio C:V for one-rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR is not known, with current American Heart Association recommendations for newborns, for children, and for adults. C:V ratios influence effectiveness of CPR, but memorizing different ratios is educationally cumbersome. We hypothesized that a ratio might provide adequate universal application for all age arrest victims. Design: Clinical study. Setting: Tertiary care children's hospital.

In this section, we're going to cover two-responder adult CPR for the healthcare professional using a bag valve mask.
Different ages of people require a different set standard for CPR ratios. For instance, a baby is different than a child, a child is different than the average adult, and the average adult is different than the elderly person. For an elderly person, pushing hard, fast and deep may cause ribs to break, and of course, the baby or infant requires less effort, so what are the acceptable standard CPR Ratios. The anatomy of the inside of the chest cavity for all ages is essentially the same.
