What is CPR? And How to Perform It.

Published on June 6, 2024

When emergencies strike, every second counts, especially in the event someone goes into Sudden Cardiac Arrest(SCA), where the heart suddenly stops beating. Knowing how to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) can make the difference between life and death. If CPR is performed immediately, it can double or even triple the chance of survival. SCA can occur at any time and place, which is why it is important to be properly trained in administering CPR.

What is CPR?

CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. It is an emergency procedure performed when the heart stops beating. CPR involves chest compressions and, in some cases, manual ventilations to maintain circulation and oxygenation in the body until professional medical help arrives.

How to Perform CPR?

Step 1: Check Responsiveness

Check if the person is breathing and responsive. If they are not breathing or gasping, and they do not respond, they require CPR.

Step 2: Call for Help

If there is no response, call 911 immediately.

If possible, ask someone else to call while you start CPR.

Step 3: Begin Chest Compressions

Hand Placement: Place the heel of one hand on the center of the chest and place the other hand on top.

Body Position: Keep your arms straight, with your shoulders directly over your hands.

Compression Technique: Push hard and fast, at least 2 inches deep at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. Allow the chest to rise fully between compressions.
