Ninety percent of people who experience cardiac arrest outside of a hospital die. There’s one thing that can double or even triple their chance of survival: cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Hands-only CPR is easy to learn. Use a dummy to learn how to do the compressions, using songs like the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” for help in learning the compression rate.
The life you save with CPR is likely someone you love. Most out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the home, meaning you may save your spouse, parent or friend. Schedule a training today with the American Heart Association.
