Nicole Collins began CPR at a Geneva High School dance when senior student Bridget Archbold collapsed and became responsive after collapsing and seizing for about a minute.
Athletic Trainer Nicole Collins who was working as a chaperone checked Bridget’s vital signs and began CPR. The senior started breathing after about two rounds of CPR.
The compression-ventilation ratio for 1- and 2-rescuer CPR is 15 compressions to 2 ventilations when the victim’s airway is unprotected, according to the American Heart Association.
According to Mayo Clinic, thirty chest compressions followed by two rescue breaths is considered one cycle, but some people might consider each round or cycle as the AHA’s 15 compressions to two breaths guideline.
Hands-only CPR with no breaths is also acceptable, especially for people that are not trained in CPR. The recommended CPR rate is 100 to 120 compressions per minute, according the Mayo Clinic.

Hands-Only CPR is CPR without rescue breaths. If you see a teen or adult collapse, you can perform Hands-Only CPR with just two easy steps:
1) Call 911, and
2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the Bee Gees’ classic disco song “Stayin’ Alive.”
The song is 100 beats per minute – the minimum rate you should push on the chest during HandsOnly CPR.
Why would you use Hands-Only CPR?
With 70 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happening at home, if you’re called on to perform HandsOnly CPR, you’ll likely be trying to save the life of someone you know and love. Hands-Only CPR carried out by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as CPR with breaths in the first few minutes during an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest for an adult victim.
