What is CPR?
CPR stands for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation and is an emergency life-saving measure that applies a combination of rescue breathing and chest compression's done on unconscious, non-breathing patients.
CPR can be done on persons suffering cardiac arrest and also for near-drowning/ asphyxiation/ trauma cases. CPR conducts defibrillation and supports heart pumping for short duration, allowing oxygen to reach the brain, which buys time until help arrives.
CPR is most effective when done as early as possible.
