Cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR as it's better known is a lifesaving technique used in medical emergencies (including heart attack or near drowning). It is performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest. It is indicated in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing. Lives can be saved with CPR and is imperative for people working in the health care field. CPR may not restart the heart but its main purpose is to restore partial flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart.
