What happens if cpr is performed on a healthy person?

You'll know it.: CPR is needed when the heart isn't pumping i.e. Cardiac arrest. In this situation the patient will remain unresponsive even if "fast and hard" chest compressions are being given. If the patient is not in cardiac arrest (sleeping, intoxicated, etc), they will respond in some way when compressions are begun as compressions are not pleasant. Look at it this way, if they wake up, your job is done. ...Read more
