CARDIOPULMONARY RESPIRATION (CPR)

CARDIOPULMONARY RESPIRATION (CPR)

CPR is a skill that everyone should have regardless of their education level or occupation. Being able to check for a collapsed person’s responsiveness, breathing, and pulse is crucial.
If no breathing or pulse is appreciated, then a bystander can perform chest compressions and rescue breaths until medical help arrives or the patient arrives at a hospital. Chest compressions alone can help save a life by circulating the blood in the body after the heart has stopped. It’s vital for everyone to know how to check for a pulse and start chest compressions if no pulse is found.” Dr.Alex Sloboda (Emergency Medicine Department, UBTH)
