What does HLW mean?

Heart Lungs Revival (German: Herz-Lungen-Wiederbelebung, HLW), is a lifesaving technique intended to end a respiratory and circulatory arrest. HLW is a combination of chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth rescue breathing. Together, these actions help keep oxygenated blood flowing to the brain and other vital organs until professional medical treatment is available.
