What is CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation ) ?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions delivered to victims thought to be in cardiac arrest.

Heart stops pumping blood, when there is a cardiac arrest , which is often caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation (VF).CPR can support a small amount of blood flow to the heart and brain to “buy time” until normal heart function is restored.
