CPR: Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation

CPR full form

The full form of CPR is Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation. Cardio means “heart”, Pulmonary means “related to lungs” and Resuscitation means “to revive”. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency lifesaving procedure useful in a heart attack or cardiac arrest, drowning conditions where someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped. It’s far better to do something in emergencies to save a life than doing nothing. Your effort of doing something could save someone’s life. This technique is a combination of chest compression and mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing. CPR helps restore blood circulation to the heart and brain until medical treatment is available; it delays the tissue death and damage to the brain. People who often handle emergencies like doctors, lifeguards, firefighters are trained in providing CPR.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

If you are not trained in CPR, then perform hands-only CPR i.e., performing uninterrupted chest compression of about 100-120 per minute. If you are trained in CPR, then perform chest compression at first then check and open the airway and perform rescue breathing/mouth to mouth breathing. Perform one cycle CPR i.e., 30 chest compression & then check the airway & give 2 rescue breaths. Check whether the person has proper ventilation. If AED (Automated external defibrillator) is available immediately, deliver one shock and then resume CPR. In CPR, CAB is the common abbreviation that helps people in performing different steps of CPR. CAB stands for Compression, airway & Breathing.
