What is CPR? CPR is short for cardiopulmonary resuscitation which is an emergency medical procedure for manually pumping a victims' heart until it can be restarted. This can be used when someone who's lungs have filled with fluid. When administering CPR you are forcing oxygen into the lunges that can then work its way into the blood stream. The purpose of this process is to keep oxygenated blood flowing through the body and keep vital organs alive.
Why do you need a CPR Kit? A CPR kit is not a product that helps the functionality of the CPR process. CPR kits are filled with equipment that help protect the rescuer not the patient. There are a number of risks associated with administering CPR primarily the transmission of diseases such as AIDS.
What is in a CPR Kit: The most important product in a CPR kit is a CPR mask/shield this product allows a rescuer to breath into a patient but prevents the backflow of air to come back to the rescuer preventing the transferring of bodily fluids from patient to rescuer. Other equipment commonly found in a CPR kit include medical gloves, anticeptic towelettes and bio waste bags. These products are used to clean up any bodily fluid that might be on or around the face before administering CPR.
