Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

CPR is an emergency procedure used to restore heart function during cardiac arrest. By administering CPR, you can help double or even triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of recovery. Become a lifesaver in your community and be empowered to aid cardiac arrest victims by learning CPR.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, also known as CPR, is a set of techniques used to treat unconscious victims of cardiac arrest. CPR can help improve the victim’s chance of survival when the rescuer intervenes quickly and effectively.

Why CPR?

When you know CPR, you’re able to provide critical support during an emergency situation and keep your loved ones, neighbors, and coworkers safe. You never know when cardiac arrest might occur, but you can prepare for it with CPR training.

How is CPR Done?

Once the rescuer has identified the signs of cardiac arrest, they begin a series of chest compressions and defibrillation. CPR training will give you hands-on practice and a precise understanding of the CPR steps.

I spent 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic, and I think everyone should learn CPR…

Because CPR is most effective when it’s performed immediately. It’s not the firefighters, paramedics, or nurses who save lives, it’s the bystanders. According to the AHA, only 46% of cardiac arrest victims receive immediate help. As a bystander, you can use CPR to help a victim of cardiac arrest stay alive until first responders like myself arrive on the scene. Every second counts. I started this company to empower bystanders because it is their quick action that makes the biggest difference between life and death.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Blog


CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

The 3 main parts of CPR can be easily remembered as “CAB”. This stands for compression, airway, and breathing.

There are many components to successful high-quality CPR, including chest compressions with minimal interruptions, proper hand placement, appropriate ventilation, and adequate compression depth.

The AHA guidelines recommend a compression rate of at least 100-120 compressions per minute for adults, children, and infants.

You should continue CPR until the victim starts to breathe or wakes up, you have finished 2 minutes of CPR and are switching compressors, the AED advises you to “Stop CPR,” the scene becomes unsafe, or you become too tired and cannot continue.
