CPR, or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a procedure in which you basically try to restart someone's breathing or heart by manually compressing the person's chest and pushing air into the lungs by breathing into the person's mouth. The breathing portion of the procedure is known as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Because an Emergency Can Occur Anytime . . .
The Heartstarter learning program can help increase the survival rates by training people just like you to respond quickly. The sad truth is most people don't survive a cardiac arrest. Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it is too late, but fewer than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby.
