Hands-Only CPR

Hands-Only CPR



Approximately 300,000 people annually will suffer sudden cardiac arrest outside a hospital setting.

Less than one in four receives CPR from a bystander.

Studies show survival rates fall 10% each minute without CPR before emergency medical assistance.

Hands-Only CPR has been shown to double or even triple the victim’s chances of survival.

It is far better to do something than to do nothing at all if you’re fearful that your knowledge or abilities aren’t sufficient. Remember, the difference between your doing something and doing nothing could be someone’s life.

Learning the techniques that will allow you to save a life by performing Hands-Only CPR takes only 15 minutes.
