 CIRCULATION

"C" is for CIRCULATION. In order to determine if the victim's heart is beating, place two fingertips on his carotid artery, located in the depression between the windpipe and the neck muscles (Figure 1), and apply slight pressure for several seconds.

If there is no pulse then the victim's heart is not beating, and you will have to perform chest compressions
