When the patient is unresponsive and no breathing is detected

This is because CPR is only necessary when the patient is not breathing on their own. If the patient has even a weak heartbeat, you should not perform CPR. In that case, you need to put them in the recovery position, monitor their breathing, and call an ambulance.
