Compressions are performed at a rate of at least 100 per minute; ventilations are delivered once every 6-8 seconds.

CPR in adult, child, and infant patients with an advanced airway in place changes to continuous compressions at a rate of at least 100 per minute with 1 ventilation delivered every 6 to 8 seconds.
