What is CPR? Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure consisting of chest compressions often combined with artificial ventilation 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.
A sudden cardiac event may occur to anyone, anywhere, and anytime. An individual’s best chance of survival after cardiac arrest occurs when immediate intervention is provided. Early, bystander CPR is a vital link in the chain of survival because it serves as a bridge to the arrival of EMS and advanced medical care.
Adult, child, and infant CPR education is a valuable skill that everyone should learn. RMCCF’s American Heart Association – certified instructors may be invited into your workplace to instruct staff to identify an individual experiencing a cardiac arrest and to perform life-saving CPR skills correctly. RMCCF, RFD and our partners will also be offering CPR courses to the community, often free of charge.
