mouth-·to-·mouth res·pi·ra·tion

a method of artificial ventilation involving an overlap of the patient's mouth (and nose in small children) with the operator's mouth to inflate the patient's lungs by blowing, followed by an unassisted expiratory phase brought about by elastic recoil of the patient's chest and lungs; repeated 12-16 times a minute; if the nose is not covered by the operator's mouth, the nostrils must be closed by pinching.
