CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is an emergency procedure performed on people suffering cardiac arrest that provides a continuous flow of oxygen to the lungs and brain until the person regains consciousness or emergency care arrives.
An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is a portable electronic device that uses electricity to help restore heart rhythm. AEDs are so common now, they can be found in local supermarkets, shopping malls and airports for emergency use.Add a comment
