CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can sometimes restart a stopped heart. It is most effective in people who were generally healthy before their heart stopped.
During CPR, the our staff repeatedly pushes on the chest with great force and periodically puts air into the lungs. Electric shocks (called defibrillation) may also be used to correct an abnormal heart rhythm, and some medicines might also be given to help resuscitation.
You have the right to choose not to be resuscitated by putting in place a do-not-resuscitate order (DNR)
