If a woman or a man experience a Heart attack they may become unresponsive. At this point it is important to call 911 and to check for breathing. If your victim is not conscience or breathing then Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) needs to be preformed. CPR is an emergency procedure which is performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person.
It is indicated in those who are unresponsive with no breathing that CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart; its main purpose is to restore partial flow of oxygenate blood to the brain and heart. CPR may buy time for the victim until an AED is brought to the scene. The use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) during a cardiac arrest can dramatically increase the survival rate for the victim.
An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrilla . By shocking the heart a normal rhythm may be produced and create a successful outcome for the victim.
