Hands Only CPR

Last week (June 1st – June 7th) was National CPR and AED Awareness Week.

About 70% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes, so family or household members should be prepared to perform Hands-Only CPR if they have not taken any other CPR/AED Course. With no mouth-to-mouth ventilations required, this is a safe alternative to bridge the time gap it takes for EMS to arrive and allows oxygenated blood to circulate to the brain.
