If you need to give breaths to a friend or stranger you have to use a CPR mask, but if you are doing it to a relative you don't have to use a mask. We used an AED. An AED is a portable device that checks the heart and can send an electric shock to the heart to help restore normal heart rythm. We only used a replica AED that couldn't sent the shock but we still learned from it.
The CPR course was really interesting and I was privileged to learn how to do it. We all completed level 1 in Defibrillator training.
