CPR CAN SAVE LIVES

CPR can save lives. The chances of survival is greatly increased when the victim receives CPR using proper techniques.

The most important lesson to be learned in your training is to USE COMMON SENSE.

WHAT IS CPR?

CPR stands for Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation.

It is an emergency procedure, performed in an effort to manually provide oxygen to the brain to a person who is unresponsive and not breathing.

By performing mouth-to-mouth breathing and chest compressions, the rescuer can manually provide oxygen and blood circulation to the victim.

The earlier these steps take place in an emergency, the better the chance of a victim's survival.
