    Answer: The correct option is B (The victim is not breathing but has a pulse).

    Explanation:

    FIRST AID can be defined as the immediate and correct help rendered to a victim of accident or sudden illness which involves using the materials available and application of correct techniques before he/she is taken to hospital. The type of first aid to be given to a patient will depend on the present emergency situation.

    Rescue breathing is a type of first aid rendered to victims of:

    –> Near drowning

    –> Overdose or poisoning

    –> Choking

    –> Carbon monoxide poisoning

    –>Severe asthma attack

    Rescue breathing is carried out if the person is not breathing but has a pulse, give 1 rescue breath every 5 to 6 seconds or about 10 to 12 breaths per minute.

    Rescue breathing in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may be accompanied with chest compressions IF there is no pulse or heart beat. But if the victim is not breathing but has a pulse, only 1 rescue breath every 5 seconds without chest compressions is given.
