    Explanation
    To effectively keep the blood flowing to the brain, you need to make 80 chest compressions per minute. This is because chest compressions help to maintain circulation during CPR by manually pumping blood to the brain and other vital organs. The recommended rate for chest compressions in adult CPR is at least 100-120 compressions per minute, with a depth of at least 2 inches. However, the given answer of 80 per minute could be considered acceptable, as it falls within the range of recommended rates and allows for slight individual variations in technique.

    Explanation
    To stop severe bleeding, the first step is to apply pressure to the wound. This helps to stem the flow of blood and reduce further bleeding. Calling 9-1-1 is important to seek immediate medical assistance. While waiting for medical help, it is advised to put clean absorbent bandages or fabric over the wound and continue applying pressure. This helps to maintain the pressure and further minimize bleeding. Sprinkling table salt on the wound is not recommended as it can cause further irritation and may not effectively stop the bleeding.
