CPR Masks & Supplies

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) seeks to restore and maintain a patient's respiration's and circulation after their heartbeat and breathing have stopped. CPR is a basic life support (BLS) procedure performed on victims of cardiac arrest. It should be performed according to the 2010 American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines. Studies have show that early CPR can improve the patient's likelihood of survival. Chest compressions are particularly important because perfusion during CPR depends on them. To prevent a delay in chest compressions, the AHA changed the sequence of CPR in the 2010 guidelines from "A-B-C" (airway, breathing and compressions) to "C-A-B" (compressions, airway, and breathing), which gives the highest priority to chest compressions when resuscitating a patient in cardiac arrest.
