CPR refers to Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation. When a person has cardiac arrest, the heart stops working, leading to loss of blood flow to the brain. CPR is performed by compressing the chest by hand at a high force, rate and, depth. The American Heart Association (AHA) has provided strict guidelines on how CPR must be performed.
