Course DescriptionBack to Course List
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving procedure that can provide oxygen and circulation to someone who has suffered a cardiac and respiratory arrest. The essentials of CPR are chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth breathing if the person has no pulse and is not breathing. Ensuring the airway is patent is essential because if the individual is unable to exchange air, no matter how much you perform compressions you will not be able to oxygenate the blood to support vital organs. If unable to do rescue breathing due to a blocked airway, continue compressions as this will circulate already oxygenated blood until help arrives. This course will cover those steps when coming across someone who needs assistance because they have no pulse, may not be breathing, have a blocked airway, or all the above.
