Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or CPR is a life-saving technique that everyone should know. We’ve all seen it on TV or maybe even in person. But could we actually perform CPR in a time of emergency?
CPR is used in case of many life-threatening emergencies including heart attack, choking or near drowning. Basically, it is used to revive someone’s breathing or to get his or her heart beat started and regulated. This technique involves chest compressions, as well as assisted breathing, and can be performed on an adult, child or baby.
Who Should Know CPR?
Everyone from babysitters and lifeguards to new moms and dads should be trained. Here’s hoping you’ll never have to use your CPR training, but if you’re ever in a situation, you’ll be thankful to have it.
