What Is CPR?
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or (CPR) – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
Automated External Defibrillators (AED)
AEDs can greatly increase a cardiac arrest victim’s chances of survival. To minimize the time to defibrillation for cardiac arrest victims, deployment of AEDs should not be limited to only trained people (although training is still recommended).

7 CPR steps everyone should know
- Position your hand
Make sure the patient is lying on his back on a firm surface. Kneel beside him and place the heel of your hand on the center of the chest.
- Interlock fingers
Keeping your arms straight, cover the first hand with the heel of your other hand and interlock the fingers of both hands together. Keep your fingers raised so they do not touch the patient’s chest or rib cage.
- Give chest compressions
Lean forward so that your shoulders are directly over the patient’s chest and press down on the chest about two inches. Release the pressure, but not your hands, and let the chest come back up.
- Open the airway
Move to the patient’s head. Tilt his head and lift his chin to open the airway again. Let his mouth fall open slightly.
- Give rescue breaths
Pinch the nostrils closed with the hand that was on the forehead and support the patient’s chin with your other hand. Take a normal breath, put your mouth over the patient’s, and blow until you can see his chest rise.
- Watch chest fall
Remove your mouth from the patient’s and look along the chest, watching the chest fall. Repeat steps five and six once. Make sure your child memorizes these CPR steps, plus these other first-aid tips parents should teach their kids.
- Repeat chest compressions and rescue breaths
Place your hands on the chest again and repeat the cycle of 30 chest compressions, followed by two rescue breaths. Continue the cycle. Aside from these handy CPR steps, here are more medical procedures you can do at home.
