CPR Course

During a cardiac arrest, the absence of blood flow can cause vital organs such as the brain and heart to suffer irreparable damage. Chest compressions, however, create a small amount of blood flow to these organs, and the effectiveness of the chest compressions is crucial in determining the amount of blood flow produced.

Ineffective compressions that are too shallow or slow, or that are frequently interrupted, can significantly reduce the amount of blood flow to the brain and heart.

Additionally, frequent or prolonged interruptions in chest compressions can decrease the victim’s chance of survival.

Although CPR may not always be successful in saving the victim’s life, early initiation of CPR within four minutes of cardiac arrest and defibrillation within ten minutes can increase the victim’s chance of survival up to 40%.

CPR helps maintain a trickle of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart, effectively serving as an artificial heartbeat and respirator until defibrillation can shock the heart into a normal rhythm or emergency medical equipment arrives.
