As already noted, have to apply artificial respiration sometimes within a few hours. It can only stop when the victim does it for breath, moved his lips and his face will light paint. If he stops breathing again, you should immediately resume the procedure. There are a number of methods of artificial respiration: 1. If you are alone with the victim, turn it face down so that the head was turned to the side and put his right hand to his mouth and nose were free. Left hand pull forward.

Place the victim on his back. Grab language fingers wrapped scarf. Counting “one, two, three”, pull tongue forward as far as possible, without applying, however, effortlessly. Considering the “four, five, six,” the language of return to its normal position, not letting it out of your fingers. Repeat this persistently and methodically.
