    WHY LEARN HANDS-ONLY CPR?

    Cardiac arrest ¡V an electrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and disrupts the flow of blood to the brain, lungs and other organs - is a leading cause of death. Each year, over 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States.

  • When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby.
  • According to the American Heart Association, about 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim¡¦s chance of survival.

    BE THE DIFFERENCE FOR SOMEONE YOU LOVE

    If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
  • 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes.
  • Unfortunately, only about 46 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives.
  • Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public. It can double or even triple a victim's chance of survival.

    MUSIC CAN SAVE LIVES

    Hands-Only CPR has just two easy steps: If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, (1) Call 9-1-1; and (2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song "Stayin Alive". During CPR, you should push on the chest at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. The beat of "Stayin Alive" is a perfect match for this, and research shows that people are more likely to remember the correct pace when trained to the beat of a familiar song.

    TAKE 60 SECONDS TO LEARN HOW TO SAVE A LIFE

    NOTE:The AHA still recommends CPR with compressions and breaths for infants and children and victims of drowning, drug overdose, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.
