CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a lifesaving technique used when someone’s heart has stopped beating or they’re not breathing (for example, they’ve had a heart attack, or nearly drowned). While it’s best to be trained in CPR before attempting to perform it on someone, it’s better to try something than do nothing if you see a person in a life-or-death situation.
If a person has stopped breathing or her heart is no longer beating, he can sustain brain damage in as little as several minutes, and die in as few as 8 to 10 minutes. CPR may help head off these dire consequences. It can keep oxygen-rich blood flowing to the person’s brain and other vital organs until medical professionals can help him to recover a normal heart rhythm.
