What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique that manually pumps blood to deliver oxygen to the organs during a cardiac arrest when the heart cannot do so on its own. When not beating, the heart fails to pump blood to the body's major organs, including the brain, kidneys, and liver. These organs need oxygen in the blood to survive, and without oxygen, severe brain damage will occur within four minutes, and the victim will die within ten minutes. Therefore, performing immediate CPR dramatically improves the victim's chance of survival while waiting for the Emergency Medical Team.

What is the correct way to perform CPR?

According to the American Heart Association's (AHA) latest recommendations, there are two main types of CPR: compressions-only CPR and CPR with rescue breathing. If a bystander finds a person who has collapsed or witnesses a cardiac arrest, they should immediately check for responsiveness and a pulse. If neither are present, call 911 and begin CPR. The guidelines for CPR is:

Compressions-only CPR
Kneeling above the victim, rescuers should deliver rapid compressions to the center of the victim's chest, using both hands to pump at least 2 inches down into the chest at a rate of 100 - 120 beats per minute, and allowing the chest to recoil between compressions. Continue, without taking breaks, until emergency medical personnel arrive on the scene and can take over.

CPR with Rescue Breathing
If the victim is not breathing normally, rescuers should begin by performing 30 chest compressions, then tilting the head back and lifting the chin upwards to clear their airway. Next, rescuers should seal their mouth over the victim's and deliver one rescue breath, watching for the victim's chest to rise. If it does not inflate, give a second rescue breath. After giving two rescue breaths, resume chest compressions at a ratio of 30 compressions to 2 breaths. Continue delivering rescue breaths until the victim begins breathing normally or until emergency medical assistance can take over.

When is an AED needed?

CPR manually pumps blood when the heart stops during a cardiac arrest, but it does not restart the heart. A cardiac arrest victim requires the use of an AED or Automated External Defibrillator if they do not have a pulse. An Automated External Defibrillator is used for starting a heart that has stopped beating. These devices are available for public use in subway stations, libraries, airports, schools, sports arenas, parks, and shopping malls. The voice-automated device will guide the rescuer through each step of use. After using the AED, rescuers should confirm that the victim's pulse returns before they stop delivering chest compressions. They may continue rescue breathing if the victim is not breathing on their own.
