ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of the cardiocerebral resuscitation (CCR) protocols in saving the lives of the cardiac patients. A study shows that cardiac arrest victims have greater chance of survival if they are given chest compression or the CCR rather the mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Doctors also agreed that giving air through the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has negative effects on the patients.
