Welcome to Adult CPR

Introduction
Chest compression on adult in correct timing Why is timing important?

When the heart (pulse) and lung (breathing) stops, the victim has 5 minutes before (gradual) brain death starts to occur if no CPR is performed. Therefore, it is very important to start CPR as soon as possible.


What is Hands-only CPR?

Any bystander who is not trained in CPR can perform this type of CPR to try to save a life. Hands-only CPR is better than no CPR. If you witnessed an adult or a child/infant suddenly collapse then:
1. Call EMS / 911
2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest
