Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
When a person develops cardiac arrest, the heart stops beating. There is no blood flow and no pulse. With no blood flowing to the brain, the person becomes unresponsive and stops breathing normally.
This American Heart Association video demonstrates the steps to provide CPR to cardiac arrest victim.
You now need to check to see if the person is not breathing or not breathing normally (such as "gasping").
