CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, which is an emergency procedure used if a person’s heart stops beating or breathing ceases. AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator, which is a portable device used to treat people suffering from sudden cardiac arrest, a potentially fatal condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating correctly. First aid refers to medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred.
