What is CPR? what does it stand for?

Need a faster answer?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving technique that is performed when a person's breathing or heart has stopped. The purpose of CPR is to move blood and therefore oxygen (which your body needs to survive) to the brain and heart. CPR involves three steps:

(1) Compressing the person's chest to keep the blood circulating.
(2) Opening the person's airway (the passageway between the nose/mouth and the lungs).
(3) Giving rescue breaths that fill the lungs with air.
