Breaths

Keep in mind that children’s lungs are much smaller and be sure to use shallower breaths. Watch victim’s chest to prevent stomach distention.

If the child is not breathing:

  • Cover the child’s mouth tightly with your mouth
  • Pinch the nose closed
  • Keep the chin lifted and head tilted
  • Give two slow breaths. Do NOT give large, full, forceful breaths.

If the chest does NOT rise, try the chin lift-head tilt again, and give two more breaths. If the chest still doesn’t rise, check to see if something is blocking the airway and try to remove it.
