CPR means Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and is performed by compressing the sternum (breast bone) deep (about one third [1/3] of the depth of the chest for children and infants only, not for adults) and fast (at least 100 times per minute for everybody, but no more than 120 times per minute!), without taking the hands off the chest. Training for help in choking is always included.

According to the latest Guidelines as set by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and published in USA by the American Heart Association, any professional or lay person (bystander) should be able to perform  sets of 30 compressions (pumps, down and up), followed by two breaths (the breaths should take less than 5 seconds), then 30 compressions, two breaths, 30 compressions, two breaths, and so on, until the Paramedics (EMT) arrive and take over. Compressions without the breaths are also approved by ILCOR.

If anyone does NOT feel comfortable to give breaths, they still can help by performing continuous compressions (hands-only CPR), at least 2″ (but no more than 2.4″ or 6 cm) for adults, about 2″ for children, and about 1.5″ for infants.

AED (Automated External Defibrillation) Certification enables each person who took the training to use an AED anywhere one is available, if a person becomes unconscious and suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

All the CPR and BLS (Basic Life Support for the Health Care and Professional Rescuers, also called Professional CPR) Certifications now include the AED as well.
