How Much Do You Really Know About CPR?

How much do you know about CPR? Research shows that 80% of cardiac arrests happen in the home. The CPR Hero believes in creating heroes in every home. Now is the time to learn, so you are ready if an emergency occurs.

What is CPR?
CPR is short for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. CPR needs to be administered when a person is unresponsive and not breathing (or not breathing normally). There are many reasons as to why a person would stop breathing, or why their heart would stop beating effectively. When this occurs, another person can perform CPR to help keep oxygen-rich blood flowing to the victim’s body.

What does CPR do?
CPR keeps blood pumping through the heart when the heart isn’t effectively pumping blood on its own. That keeps blood moving to the body and brain. CPR can help revive the heart and lungs and potentially prevent severe brain damage or death. 

When is CPR needed?
CPR is most successful when administered as soon as possible, but you must first determine if it’s necessary.

Reading about CPR to learn when it’s needed will give you a basic understanding of the concepts, but the American Heart Association strongly recommends that you take a CPR course. If CPR is needed, performing it correctly will give someone the best chance of recovery.

Don’t give up!

People have been kept alive with CPR because the rescuers simply didn’t quit!

Taking a CPR course could help you save the life of someone you love or a stranger. The more of us who know what to do, the better the chances we all have of living long and healthy lives.
