For COCPR (ie, CPR without rescue breaths), the provider delivers only the chest compression portion of care at a rate of 100/min to a depth of 38-51 mm (1-1.5 in.) without pause. This delivery of compressions continues until the arrival of medical professionals or until another rescuer is available to continue compressions. [3]
