CPR Can Make a Difference

According to the Life Saving Foundation, 1.2 million people around the world die by drowning every year, that is more than two people per minute. Out of that 50 percent are children. Now why would this statistic hold true when many countries across the world hold swimming classes? Sometimes, even if someone knows how to swim, there are still various scenarios that can cause that person to drown even if they have been taught how to swim. Examples of this are:

· If a person falls out of a boat
· Swims too far
· Is carried away by a strong current
· Cramps or inability to swim due to cold water
· Falling from a bridge
· Swept from shore by a big wave

What is CPR?

CPR, also known as Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is an emergency procedure performed to victims of drowning, cardiac arrest and the like. It’s a procedure that can be used on children, babies, animals, elderly and adults. It is done by placing your palm on the person’s chest and compressing it thirty times followed by two deep breaths into the person’s mouth.

How effective is CPR?

The effectiveness of CPR is all depending on how long it takes before someone initiates it. The quicker and faster it is performed, the more chances of survival the victim has.
