Year 5 and 6 Basic CPR

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is an emergency procedure in which a person presses up and down  on the casualty’s chest (chest compressions) and gives them a series of rescue breaths to help save their life when they are in cardiac arrest.

Our Year 5 and 6 classes took part in a training session to learn all about basic CPR, and what to do in an emergency.

CPR is a procedure that should only be used when someone is unconscious and not breathing – or not breathing – normally. If someone is unconscious but they are breathing normally, you still need to call 999 and then put them in the recovery position.
