Adult CPR with two rescuers is different from adult single rescuer CPR. First check for patient responsiveness and normal breathing and contact emergency services. With two rescuers, the rescuer kneeling next to the patient's chest performs chest compressions, while the rescuer at the patient's head does rescue breathing. Check for a pulse and begin CPR if the patient has no pulse and is not breathing normally. Perform 30 compressions at a rate of between 100-120 per minute and a depth of 2-2.4 inches in the center of the chest. Once five cycles of CPR are done, or after about 2 minutes, the rescuers should switch places so that the person doing compressions is now doing rescue breaths, and vice versa.
