CPR saves life

CPR Training Guide

Upon introducing Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation to the public, the chances of survival of victims have increased. Prior to these, most victims of heart attack, drowning and other related emergencies often suffer brain damage while heading to the hospital without resuscitation.

Brain damage occurs when the brain does not receive oxygenated blood and usually starts about 4 minutes from the time the person stops breathing. Within 10 minutes, the brain cells start to die and imminent brain damage occurs.

Once the brain cell are dead, there is no chance of repair and eventually the victim dies or goes into a vegetative state.
