CPR stands for Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and is one of the fundamental techniques used in first aid to resuscitate someone in an emergency situation.

We’ve all heard it but what does CPR actually stand for?

CPR stands for Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation and is one of the fundamental techniques used in first aid to resuscitate someone in an emergency situation.  It is also one of the most important techniques to get right which is why we recommend everyone is trained in CPR

The actual development of the CPR technique originates from back in 1956 when Mr Peter Safar and Mr James Elam developed the mouth-to-mouth technique.  The following year this technique was used in the American Military to resuscitate soldiers.
