CPR stands for Cardio (heart) Pulmonary (lungs) Resuscitation.
CPR is a first aid technique that can be used if someone is not breathing properly or if their heart has stopped.
By pressing hard and fast on the chest and giving rescue breaths you can keep blood and oxygen circulating in the body, which will keep the casualty alive until professional help arrives.
