HANDS ON CPR –  Tues. March 6 – 11:00

Hands Only CPR is a nationwide initiative developed by the American Heart Association to teach life-saving skills to laypeople. The technique consists of two steps: Call 911 and push fast and hard in the center of the chest.  Cardiac arrests occur outside the hospital environment every 40 seconds with less than 46% of those patients receiving CPR. Using Hands Only CPR triples those chances for survival. The teaching session lasts approximately one hour. The first half is teaching and discussion and the second half of the session is demonstration and hands on learning. We will cover causes of cardiac arrests, the differences between cardiac arrest and heart attacks, and the differences between Hands Only CPR and certified CPR.
Hands Only CPR is only effective for teenagers and adults. This is not a CPR certification class. SIGN UP ON THE BOARD.
