What is CPR and what does it do?
- CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
- It is an emergency procedure consisting of mouth-to-mouth respiration and chest compressions.
- CPR with rescue breaths allows oxygenated blood to circulate to vital organs such as the brain and heart.
- This emergency life-saving procedure can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
How is CPR Performed?
There are 2 commonly known versions of CPR:
Conventional method of CPR using chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth breathing OR
Compression Only CPR or commonly called “Hands-Only” CPR is without mouth-to-mouth breaths.
Hands-Only CPR is recommended for use by people who witness someone in distress in a public place such as work, shopping center, etc.
Using Hands-Only requires calling 9-1-1 and to PUSH HARD & FAST!
The Difference Between a Heart Attack AND Cardiac Arrest?
Cardiac Arrest occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. Cardiac Arrest is an “ELECTRICAL” problem.
Heart Attack occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked. A Heart Attack is a “CIRCULATION” problem.
What does AED stand for?
Automated External Defibrillators
AED use and knowledge is important because it can greatly increase a cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival.
