In brief: CPR

CPR means cardiopulomnary resuscitation.
When an individual suffers a cardiac arrest, blood circulation stops and organs suffer and the individual can die. By instituting CPR as quickly as possible a life can be saved. Simply put, it is an emergency procedure where by performing external compression of the chest over the heart, blood flow is temporarily restored to vital organs.
