Why Learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) combines mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and chest compressions to deliver oxygen rich blood and artificial circulation to an unconscious and not breathing normally person until medical help arrives.
Bystander CPR can be life-saving and increases the person’s chances of survival if started soon after the heart has stopped beating. For every minute of delay 10% chance of survival has been lost. If no CPR is performed, it only takes three to four minutes for the person to become brain dead due to a lack of oxygen.
