If you were with someone who had a heart attack or drown would you know what to do? Knowing CPR could help you save a life!
When cardiac arrest occurs, the heart stops pumping blood. CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain until normal heart function is restored.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) combines rescue breathing and chest compressions. Rescue breathing provides oxygen to the person's lungs. Chest compressions keep oxygen-rich blood circulating until an effective heartbeat and breathing can be restored.
