RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

A

. Remove the victim from the source of the shock.

. Check the victim to see if the person is breathing.

. If the victim is not breathing, give artificial ventilation. The preferred method is mouth-to-mouth.

. CPR may be necessary if the heartbeat has stopped, but do not attempt this unless you have been trained in its use. OBTAIN MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
