What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a crucial life-saving technique used on drowning victims, cardiac arrest, and many other emergencies. CPR is only performed when there is a sign of no heartbeat or when the breathing stops. In those types of situations, CPR could be performed by any trained individual, and if there isn’t one, then anyone present on the scene can perform chest CPR, which is 100-120 chest compressions in a minute without stopping. CPR is a crucial life skill, and it’s pretty easy to learn. One can join courses online such as CPR HLTAID001/HLTAID009, HLTAID003/11, etc.
