Hands only CPR – You too can save a life without extensive training for free.
Most people have heard that CPR can save a life, however, it is typically only professional healthcare providers and certain people like lifegards who typically have taken the course.
Over time, groups like the American Heart Association have realized that although the IED (device to jump start the heart) is the most effective way to revive someone with a heart attack, keeping the circulation going in someone with heart failure is the key to having the best odds of survival or until the right help can arrive.
Because perfusion (the ability to keep the blood moving through the body) is essential, and because the lungs still under most cases have oxygen in them, they have been able to devise this simple and effective protocol that anyone can perform to improve the odds of survival for someone who has had a cardiac event.
The great news is you do not need to get a certification to do this. Go to http://www.handsonlycpr.org/ and watch the video. This easy protocol can help you save the life of a stranger or perhaps someone you love.
