Taking Care Of Airways - Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
CPR is a temporary procedure that can be used to maintain some blood flow to the brain, heart, and other vital organs until trained medical personnel are available to provide more advanced treatment. It involves performing a series of chest compressions and rescue breathing.
CPR has been found to be very effective when initiated as soon as possible after the injury (within minutes) and when trained medical professionals arrive within 8 to 12 minutes of the incident. However, persons trained for the same should only institute the procedure. Incorrect CPR technique can result in unintentional harm to the patient.
