In brief: WHO INVENTED CPR

No that is not the case CPR was first described by a french doctor in 1741, to give mouth to mouth resuscitation to dying victims.
Since then we have come a long way and its evolution started in serious terms in earlu 1970s and it has had many changes over the years and many changes may take place in future.But it is not invented by firemen but by medical specialists.
