What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving process that uses rescue breathing and surface chest compressions to help revive breathing and heartbeat after an individual has faced cardiac arrest, heart attack, stroke, or has drowned. This training equips you to revive a victim or at the very least help until the first responders arrive.
