CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The term cardio refers to the heart, and pulmonary refers to the lungs. CPR is the same as Basic Cardiac Life Support (BCLS). CPR is a combination of breathing and chest compressions. CPR increases a cardiac arrest casualty's chances of survival by keeping the brain supplied with oxygen until the person receives advanced medical care. CPR alone is not enough to help someone survive cardiac arrest. Advanced medical care is needed immediately, and includes the use of medications or a defibrillator.
