Text in this Example:

Repeat CPR until the infant recovers or help arrives. If the infant starts breathing again, place them in the recovery position. Periodically re-check for breathing until help arrives.
After about 2 minutes of CPR, if the infant still does not have normal breathing, coughing, or any movement, leave the infant to call 911.
Give the infant 2 more breaths. The chest should rise.
Give 30 chest compressions. Each time, let the chest rise completely. These compressions should be FAST and hard with no pausing. Count the 30 compressions quickly:
“1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30, off.”
Press down on the infant’s chest so that it compresses about 1/3 to 1/2 the depth of the chest.
Keep your other hand on the infant’s forehead, keeping the head tilted back.
Place 2 fingers on the breastbone -- just below the nipples. Make sure not to press at the very end of the breastbone.
