Learn a Simple New CPR Technique

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks.

There is a new technique called Continuous Chest Compression CPR, a hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. It’s easy to learn and does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, making it more likely bystanders will try to help. It was developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.

"This video is worth sharing," said Gordon A. Ewy, MD, director of the UA Sarver Heart Center and one of the research pioneers who developed this method.
