The Least Known Facts about CPR and AED – Video

Unfortunately enough, we all know this fact that cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in adults, these days. However the good part is, with the knowledge of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), one can easily save the lives of these unsuspected victims of cardiac arrest.

The video “Facts About CPR and AED” updated by adamssafety.com is specifically designed with an aim to inform the users about some of the most interesting facts related to CPR as well as to encourage them to enroll into CPR classes, so they can also lead their lives as a life-saver.

Every year, almost 383,000 people suffer from cardiac arrest. Sadly enough, only 32% of those people are able to get a CPR from a bystander. CPR was first introduced in 1740 and has come a long way since then, as the CPR guidelines keep being updated every five years.

The more the people will get CPR certified, the more the number of cardiac arrest survivors will increase as they will be able to get timely CPR treatment. Please refer to the given infographic to know more about these facts and on how to enroll for this life-saving training.

3 Types of CPR Techniques Explained

Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique useful is various emergency situations such as a cardiac arrest, heart attack or near drowning. This technique often includes a combination of chest compression and artificial ventilation. It helps to preserve intact brain function and restore the blood circulation and breathing to the vital organs of the patient’s body. CPR is very useful for those who become unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing. Below mentioned are some of the important CPR techniques, have a look:

High-Frequency Chest Compressions: High-Frequency Chest Compressions is an important CPR technique that helps to improve resuscitation from cardiac arrest.

Open-Chest CPR: Open chest CPR is a technique in which the heart is accessed through a thoracotomy. Compressions are performed using the thumb and fingers, or with the palm and extended fingers against the sternum. This technique helps to generates forward blood flow and coronary perfusion pressure.

Interposed Abdominal Compression CPR: Interposed Abdominal Compression or IAC CPR is basically a 3-rescuer technique-an abdominal compressor, the chest compressor and the rescuer providing ventilations. This technique includes, conventional chest compressions combined with alternating abdominal compressions. The IAC CPR helps to increases diastolic aortic pressure and venous return, leading to improved coronary perfusion pressure and blood flow to other vital organs.
