YOU PUT YOUR MOUTH THE THIERS (THE ONE YOUR GIVING THE C.P.R. TO............)
Compression on the sternum causes this especially in the elderly whose bones are usually more fragile.
As the other people that answered this question stated the force used to pump the blood out the heart while preforming CPR is enough to break ribs is correct. On an adult you need to compress the chest from 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches. Hand position is also another reason the ribs get broken. On most people doing CPR the chest will be somewhat sweaty and our hands might slide. I have had to dry off a chest first before starting CPR. I have also broken ribs. Elderly are the most likely ones that you might break ribs on. This is due to lack of body fat and also the lack of bone density. Believe me its scary when the ribs break but saving the life is more important the rib at this point. Ribs heal. Lives can't be healed if not saved first. CPR can save lives but just remember even doing CPR correctly will not save everyone.
Sometimes ribs get broken because when you are giving CPR, you need to compress the chest enough that it actually pumps the heart. A small amount of pressure wont be enough to force the blood through the blood vessels. Google CPR and it'll pull up lots of helpful sights to teach you more.
if you are performing proper CPR ribs will more than likely get broken...the point of CPR is to keep someone alive not to worry about their ribs...and when you are prforming CPR you need to use a good amount of force to get the blood flow moving and the heart pumping
The heart is below a large flat bone called the sternum. In order to press down and pump the heart manually which is what you're doing when you are doing CPR you have to push really really hard. This amount of force breaks bones.
