Proper execution of CPR is vital, which is why formal training is important.[[note]]Frequent re-training is also important because changes to procedure happen all the time. For example, in recent years, mouth-to-mouth is no longer recommended in most non-drowning cases.[[/note]] If done wrong, not only could it be ineffective, but it could damage the rib cage in a fatal manner. Proper execution could still break ribs; this is alright, and some physicians suggest it may even be necessary. Improper execution could snap off the xyphoid process at the bottom of the sternum and damage the heart itself, rendering CPR pointless.

Don't confuse it with the Heimlich maneuver, used to expel objects blocking a person's throat. CPR is for dealing with a stopped or very slowed heart, an entirely different emergency.
