Essential facts Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a treatment to restart the heart after cardiac arrest. Cardiorespiratory arrest is part of the final stage of dying, and health professionals can be involved in extremely difficult decisions about whether to give CPR to people when their heart stops or they stop breathing. It can be distressing for patients and people close to them. The survival rate of CPR is relatively low, and it also carries the risk of internal fractures, ruptures and long-term brain damage.
