We all know what CPR is but do you know how to do it?
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a first aid technique that involves conducting chest compressions on someone who has suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
By administering CPR until a defibrillator is located or medical help arrives, you can double a victim’s chance of survival.
The “new CPR” is ‘hands-only’ without the need for mouth to mouth resuscitation.
Learning how to do it is easy, and you can start by watching these two short videos:
- British Heart Foundation (BHF)
This video by the BHF features a Lego version of British actor, Vinnie Jones. Lego Vinnie teaches the nation how to save a life with ‘hands-only’ CPR:
- Arizona Sarver Heart Center
The second video, produced by doctors at the Arizona Sarver Heart Center, demonstrates how the ‘new CPR’ can be learned in just 60 seconds.
Failure to administer CPR in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths…so why not learn today?
