Mouth-to-mouth respiration

A method of artificial ventilation involving an overlap of the patients mouth (and nose in small children) with the operator's mouth to inflate the patients lungs by blowing, followed by an unassisted expiratory phase brought about by elastic recoil of the patients chest and lungs; repeated 12 to 16 times a minute; where the nose is not covered by the operator's mouth, the nostrils must be closed by pinching.
