CPR

 
Web www.EmergencyMedicalEd.com

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a relatively new medical procedure.  As we know it today,  it has it's "roots" in the early 60's.  Some of the "earlier" attempts at resuscitation included:

  • inflating the lungs of an unresponsive patient by placing a bellows in the patient's mouth and pumping away.

  • laying an unresponsive patient over a large barrel, grabbing the patient's legs then pulling and pushing the patient back and forth, rolling the patient over the barrel.

  • laying an unresponsive patient face down over the back of a horse and trotting the horse around in a circle, bouncing the patient's limp body up and down in the saddle.

As strange as some of these efforts may sound, a closer look at the mechanism reveals that there was some degree of understanding, in as much as the "providers" recognized that ventilation and some rudimentary chest compression needed to be performed on the patient.

CPR of the 21st Century is a compilation of years of research, and many hours of constructive argument.  The latest efforts being:

1.  An international symposium, Guidelines 2000 Conference on CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) sponsored by the American Heart Association in collaboration with the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR.)

2.  2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.

and

3.  2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.

CPR is an organized approach to maintaining the vital functions of a person who has been rendered incapable of continuing those functions on their own.  A simple overview of that process can be found in "CPR - The Simple View.".  For more in-depth  information about performing this "death defying act," see "CPR In-Depth." Please remember that these pages are NOT designed to replace the "In-person Lecture," the "Real-time Question/Answer sessions," or the "Hands on Experience." of a CPR Class.
