Thus blood is Cited by: 12.
The depth of compression ratio for a child is at least one third the depth of the chest which is about 2 inches or 5 cm. The depth of compression ratio for an adult is at least 2 inches which is 5 cm, all with a rate of 100-120 per minute. Techniques and Approach for Adults, Children and Infants.
