Covid-19 Instructions for CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)

These guidelines are for recuscitation of a person during this time of risk of contracting Covid-19.

The North East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG has issued new guidelines relating to CPR. Please share these with your residents, so they know what to do should someone need resuscitating:

• Recognise cardiac arrest by looking for the absence of signs of life and the absence of normal breathing. Do not listen or feel for breathing by placing your ear and cheek close to the patient’s mouth. If you are in any doubt about confirming cardiac arrest, the default position is to start chest compressions until help arrives.

• Make sure an ambulance is on its way. If COVID 19 is suspected, tell them when you call 999.

• If there is a perceived risk of infection, rescuers should place a cloth/towel over the victim’s mouth and nose and attempt compression only CPR and early defibrillation until the ambulance (or advanced care team) arrives. Put hands together in the middle of the chest and push hard and fast.

• Early use of a defibrillator significantly increases the person’s chances of survival and does not increase risk of infection.

• If the rescuer has access to personal protective equipment (PPE) (e.g. FFP3 face mask, disposable gloves, eye protection), these should be worn.

• After performing compression-only CPR, all rescuers should wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water; alcohol-based hand gel is a convenient
alternative. They should also seek advice from the NHS 111 coronavirus advice service or medical adviser.
