Breathing

DRSABCD

The fifth step in DRSABCD is to check whether the casualty is Breathing by ‘Look, Listen and Feel’.

 

1. Look for movement of the casualty’s chest and upper abdominal area
2. Listen for air movement out of the casualty’s mouth and nose
3. Feel for air movement against the side of your face

 

IF BREATHING IS ABSENT

1. Roll casualty onto the back
2. Tilt head backwards
3. Seal casualty’s mouth
4. Give 2 rescue breaths
