What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving skill that should be used when a person has stopped breathing, or their heart has stopped beating, such as during a heart attack or a near-drowning. By doing CPR, oxygen can be kept in the bloodstream and sent to the brain and other vital organs until more help arrives.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that everyone start by doing chest compressions. The difference between doing nothing and doing something is likely to be the difference between life and death, so even if you don’t think you can do it, it’s better to try than to do nothing at all.

The American Heart Association suggests the following tips:

  • Untrained. CPR with only the use of your hands should be administered if you are not properly trained in CPR. It means continuing chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 per minute without stopping until medical help arrives (described in more detail below). Please do not attempt rescue breathing.
  • Educated and all set. Check for a pulse and breathing if you are confident in your training and abilities. In the event that neither breathing nor a pulse returns within 10 seconds, you should begin chest compressions. First, perform 30 chest compressions, followed by two rescue breaths.
  • Trained Individual – Even if you have CPR training but are unsure of your skills, you can help the victim by performing 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Remember that this recommendation only applies to infants older than four weeks of age, adults, and children. The rules for handling newborns are different.
  • Learn how to perform CPR and how to use an AED by enrolling in a nationally recognized CPR training course (AED). Dial 911 for instructions on how to conduct CPR if you are unskilled but need help immediately

CPR education was developed by firefighters so that anybody could apply this lifesaving skill in the event of an unexpected emergency involving a loved one.
