This module provides an overview of CPR Methods (based on AHA 2015). CPR is introduced in four steps: Airway, Breathing, Circulation, and Defibrillator. Students review the CPR procedures for one- and two-person rescues on adults, children, and infants. They learn common causes and symptoms of choking and practice abdominal thrusts and back blows.
