Why should you learn CPR?
The heart is a vital organ that pumps blood through the body and to the brain, supplying a steady flow of oxygen. Cardiac arrest stops the heart, the pulse, and breathing functions, depriving vital organs and the brain of the oxygen they so desperately need. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, known as CPR, is when an outside person takes over for a person’s heart, using chest compressions to pump the oxygen-rich blood to the vital organs and the brain.
Survival rates are dramatically increased if a victim has CPR, receives controlled stimulation from an AED device (Automated External Defibrillator) and with the fast arrival of trained emergency medical technicians or EMTs to provide greater assistance.
Note: Call 911 before beginning CPR or any other lifesaving techniques, as getting the Emergency Response System active and the EMTs on their way is the priority.
Helpful Hints: Emergency Action Steps
1. Call First Emergencies(911)- cardiac arrest (unresponsive), stroke, someone who suddenly collapse, and child/infant with heart problems who goes unresponsive **NOTE: not limited to these only**
2. Care First Emergencies(non-life threatening)- breathing emergencies(use quick auto relief medication), choking (5 abdominal thrusts & 5 back blows), anaphylaxis(use epinephrine auto-injector), and non-severe bleeding(apply direct pressure to control bleeding) **NOTE: call EMS-911 after giving immediate care if it worsens or doesn’t help**
