Definition/Purpose of CPR
CPR or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is provided to victims who are in Cardiac Arrest. Rescue Breathing provides oxygen to the bloodstream of a victim who is unable to adequately breathe. Chest compressions circulate the oxygen rich blood to throughout the victim’s body when their heart is unable to pump blood. The purpose of CPR is to provide an oxygen rich supply of blood to the major organs, to buy time until Defibrillation and Advanced Care can be administered.
