What is CPR?
CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is an emergency first aid technique that can be used to help save someone’s life if they stop breathing or if their heart stops beating.
CPR involves compressing the person’s chest with your arms and hands. It also involves giving mouth to mouth breaths. These two elements combined help blood and oxygen to continue to move around the body, keeping it alive.
When should you perform CPR?
CPR should be performed if a person is unconscious, is not responding to you, is not breathing or not breathing properly. When someone is experiencing cardiac arrest, they may take gasping breaths, but they will still require CPR.
Whether you have a first aid or trauma kit available or not, it is important that CPR is started as quickly as possible.
