h   Is there a specific place to tap a person when checking for a response?
   It doesn’t matter where the person is tapped. For consistency, we teach tapping the shoulder in adults and children and tapping the foot in infant CPR.
 
h  Can I get into legal trouble if I don’t do CPR correctly?
Do CPR to the best of your ability. As long as you are trying to do the right thing and you are not trying to hurt the victim.
 
j    I am afraid to give breaths without a mask. Should I just do nothing if I don’t have a mask?
You might carry a mask with you. Some masks fold up very small and fit on a key ring. If your job requires you to use a mask and you don’t have one, do compressions until someone with a mask arrives. Compressions alone (hands only CPR) are better than doing nothing.
 
j  Can I catch a disease such as hepatitis or AIDS by doing CPR?
CPR has been performed for years and there has never been a case of transmission of these diseases from victim to rescuer.
 
t   When should I stop CPR?
Stop when
• The person starts to respond
• Someone with more advanced training arrives and takes over
• You are too exhausted to continue or it is dangerous for you to continue, such as during an  airplane landing (resume as soon as you can unfasten your seatbelt).
 
p   How do I give CPR to someone with an opening in the neck?
Some people have an opening that connects the airway directly to the skin. This is called a stoma. If the person needs breaths, give them directly into the stoma.
 
u   If I find a person on a bed, should I move her to the floor so that I have a hard surface under her back?
If you can, quickly move the person to a firm surface to give CPR. Make sure you support the head and neck. If you are alone and can’t move the person, try to find something flat and firm. Slide it under the back to provide a firm surface.
 
o   What should I do if the person has dentures?
Leave them in place if possible. If they get in the way of creating an airtight seal, remove them.
 
p   Why don’t we do a pulse check if we are not healthcare provider workers?
Even some healthcare providers have a hard time telling if there is a pulse within 10 seconds. It is better to give CPR to a person who has a pulse than to not give CPR to someone who needs it.
 
o What should I do if the person vomits?
 Turn the person’s head to the side so the person doesn’t choke.
Clear the mouth by sweeping it with a cloth wrapped around your fingers.
Reposition the person and resume CPR.

r If I am choking and alone, what should I do?
Although there is no science to support this recommendation, a person who is alone and choking may be able to give abdominal thrusts to himself over a hard object such as the back of a chair.
