When two rescuers are present to perform child CPR, the lead position assures that the scene is safe, performs an assessment and activates EMS. If the child is not breathing and has no pulse, CPR is started. The rescuers will give cycles of 15 compressions and two breaths. After every 2 minutes, the compressor should call for a switch. At the end of 15 compressions, the person giving breaths will finish the 2 breaths and move to the patient's side and start compressions. CPR continues until the child is revived, an AED is available, or the next level of life care arrives.
