CPR stands for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation. Cardio means "heart" and Pulmonary means "related to lungs". Resusciation is a medical word which means "to revive". CPR is a life-saving technique used in medical emergencies such as heart attack or cardiac arrest. The technique is a combination of chest compression and mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing. It helps restore blood circulation to the heart and brain until medical treatment is available.
