When it comes to CPR, doctors may be giving up too soon.

A new study shows that longer CPR could save lives.

Researchers have found that, for many patients with cardiac arrest, CPR may benefit them even if they do not regain consciousness immediately.

In fact, an extra 9 minutes can help improve people's survival rates.
