These AED steps should be used when caring for a non-breathing child aged 8 or older who weighs more than 55 pounds, or an adult.
After checking the scene and ensuring that the person needs help, you should ask a bystander to call 911 for help, then:
Begin CPR after delivering the shock. Or, if no shock is advised, begin CPR. Perform 2 minutes (about 5 cycles) of CPR and continue to follow the AED's prompts. If you notice obvious signs of life, discontinue CPR and monitor breathing for any changes in condition.
