Learn the Power of CPR

Curious about what CPR is all about? We've got the scoop on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or as we like to call it, CPR - your ultimate life saving technique in emergencies.

What's the Deal with CPR?

CPR, short for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. It's the emergency procedure that can literally double or even triple someone's chances of making it after a cardiac arrest. That's why it's a skill worth having in your back pocket!

Why CPR Matters

CPR isn't just another acronym; it's the game-changer in emergencies. By keeping the blood flowing, even partially, you buy precious time for the cavalry of trained medical staff to arrive. In essence, CPR is your way of being a hero before the heroes arrive!

Mastering the CPR Moves

Now, here's the lowdown on how to perform CPR:

  • Conventional CPR: This one's for the healthcare pros and those in the know. It involves chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth breathing, with a ratio of 30 compressions to 2 breaths. It's all about rhythm and depth - 100 to 120 compressions per minute and at least 2 inches deep. Just the right recipe for saving lives!

  • Hands-Only CPR: For the everyday heroes and bystanders, this is your go-to. Hands-Only CPR is all about chest compressions - no mouth-to-mouth needed. If you witness someone suddenly collapsing, just remember to press hard and fast on their chest. It's a lifesaver, even if you're not a medical pro!

Decoding Cardiac Arrest and Heart Attacks

  • Cardiac Arrest: When the heart decides to go rogue and stops beating out of the blue, that's what we call cardiac arrest. It's an "ELECTRICAL" glitch, and that's where CPR shines.

  • Heart Attack: Now, if it's all about blocked blood flow to the heart, we're talking about a heart attack. It's a "CIRCULATION" hiccup, and it's a different ballgame.
