Frequently Asked Questions

What is CPR?

CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) is a two-step chest compression, rescue breath procedure delivered to a victim in cardiac arrest. The heart ceases pumping blood in cardiac arrest, and the victim (now in Ventricular Fibrillation, or VF) requires CPR and a heart shock known as Defibrillation. Administering CPR can buy time by supplying the brain and heart with small quantities of blood until regular heart function is resurrected.

What is an AED, and why do I need to know about it?

AED is an acronym for Automated External Defibrillator, a user-friendly portable device that produces a shock to patients who lack a heartbeat and aren’t breathing. A knowledgeable responder uses AED units to dramatically boost these patients’ survival rates because early intervention is paramount.
