Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.

Lowick Live will be publishing a longer article about this, and the use of emergency defibrillators shortly.

It is accepted that the best way to keep a patient alive after what appears to be a heart attack is CPR, and a call to 999

There will be a CPR training event on 13th February 6 -7.30 pm at Lowick Village Hall. If you don’t know how to administer CPR, please attend.
