    Respiratory Arrest

    You have a pulse, but the patient is not breathing. This is called Respiratory Arrest!  

    For this we give Rescue Breaths also called Ventilations. 

    Adults receive one breath every 6 seconds.

    Children & Infants receive one breath every 3 seconds.

    According to your text books there is a range, but the seconds stated above goes across patient scenarios, whereby in some cases, patients may have an advanced airway (Intubated).  

    Every 3 seconds for Child & Infants

    Every 6 seconds for Adults
