What is the complete medical terminology for CPR?

CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, refers to the chest compressions and rescue breathing done for an unresponsive and pulseless person who has recently collapsed. The chest compressions are used to keep the blood circulating in the case of cardiac arrest (where the heart stops beating). CPR done correctly and early in the setting of a cardiac arrest situation can be life-saving.
