CPR Week

It only takes 60 seconds to save a life!

That's what the American Heart Association is asking for this, #CPR Week. They've released a 60 second video demonstrating hands-only CPR, which you can learn and perform on teens or adults. 

According to the American Heart Association, the majority of people in cardiac arrest die because they don't receive immediate CPR. However, the AHA says CPR can more than double someones chances of survival. All it takes is two steps.  First, call 911.  Second, as the video demonstrates, push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the song "Stayin Alive." The AHA says it has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.

Besides watching the video of how to do Hands-Only CPR, this is a great page from the AHA with FAQ about CPR, including mouth to mouth instructions, how to get trained and how to get trained to perform CPR on infants and children.
