Broadly speaking, cardioplumonary resuscitation (cpr), is the act of compressing the heart in an effort to create blood flow.

Side, sweep, resume: Turn them on there side, sweep there mouth out and resume compressions.

Hold neck still: You put one hand on either side of the head to stabilize the cervical spine, and proceed with cpr. The chest compressions are more important than the respirations but hold the neck in the midline and stabilize the spine while doing CPR unless the neck is not centered- do not attempt to center the neck if it appears dislocated. Just keep it immobile. ...Read more
Assess Airway: The initial steps of CPR are as follows: assess for adequate airway (no obstruction), evaluate for spontaneous respiration or breathing, and then provide chest compressions for circulation. However newer guidelines (2010) do stress the need for more rapid and effective chest compressions with less emphasis on rescue breaths. Aeds also play a very important role in resuscitative care as well. ...Read more

Yes: C-spine immobilization and long board. If a patient needs cpr, they won't be alive to worry about their spinal injury if you don't attempt to resuscitate them. The key is to minimize further damage to their spine by immobilization. If you are an emt you should know this backward and forward. If you are a lay person, just know that you want to keep their spine immobile, especially cervical. ...Read more

External support: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation: a person presses down on the chest & releases ~100x/minute to cause the pt's heart to be squeezed & externally cause blood circulation when not beating on its own. Rescue breaths allow oxygen & carbon dioxide exchange when pt not breathing. CPR 'buys time' to get Medics to pt & pt to ER while trying to identify & correct cause of heart stopping. About 6-16% survive. ...Read more
