If no CPR is performed, it only takes three to ten minutes for the person to become brain dead due to a lack of oxygen.
Using your CPR skills taught to you in your First Aid Course, you will understand the importance to help circulate the blood so it can provide oxygen to the body, and the brain and other organs stay alive while you wait for the ambulance.
There is usually enough oxygen still in the blood to keep the brain and other organs alive for a number of minutes. However, it is not circulating unless someone does cardio pulmonary resuscitation and giving them a chance of recovery.
Helping someone does not guarantee that the person will survive. We know helping someone does give that person a chance of survival. Especially when otherwise there would have been none your help is a start to a possibility of survival.
