Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency technique that is designed to save lives. It's purpose is to keep blood and oxygen flowing through the body when a person's heart and breathing have stopped (Helper, 2018). This session will train students on how to resuscitate/revive human lives and provide first-aid assistance to individuals in emergency situations. This training will also include practical steps one must take in providing CPR and first-aid.
