What is CPR-link to classes...

CPR stands for CardioPulmonary Resuscitation.  The practice of pressing on a person's chest and breathing into their lungs in the event of a cardiac arrest is referred to in the Bible in 2 Kings 4:34-36.  In the early 1950's physicians started implementing chest compressions and ventilations which we now know as CPR. Research shows that for the best chance of survival that CPR should be started within 3 minutes of collapse.  Given that 92% of cardiac arrest occurs outside of the hospital it is recommended that everyone take a CPR class. Hands-Only CPR is only recommended for adults and only useful for the first few minutes until EMS arrives.
