In medicine, resuscitation is the process by which medical personnel attempt to keep a person alive.

The first rule of resuscitation are the ABCs:
- Airway
- Breathing
- Circulation

Airway check the patient's airway to see if there is any obstruction and clear it if there is any visible.

Breathing check to see if the patient is breathing or not

Circulation check to see if the patient has any pulse or not

If necessary, start CPR in order to get air into the patient's lungs and to get the patient's blood circulating.

Remember: "Air goes in and out, Blood goes round and round. Any deviation from this is not good"

Re*sus`ci*ta"tion (?), n. [L. resuscitatio.]

The act of resuscitating, or state of being resuscitated.

The subject of resuscitation by his sorceries. Sir W. Scott.
