Intro: No Need for Mouth to Mouth CPR
Over the past several years Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) has undergone a major overhaul in the way people deliver CPR. Did you know you no longer have to give two breaths? Let along get near the person's mouth. CPR is just two steps.
Step 1: Step 1 - Witness Someone Collapse
When you witness someone suddenly collapse, you should call 911. Give them your phone number (uncase you get disconnected) your name, address and what the issue is.
Step 2: Step 2 - Begin Chest Compressions
Begin chest compressions by pushing hard and fast at the center of the chest until help arrives. Here is a simple song to remember. https://youtu.be/HjKeTo3c2wM
Step 3: Chain of Survival
From the time you call 911 to the time the fire department arrives to the time they arrive at the hospital is called the chain of survival. The first steps are very critical.
Step 4: Best Place to Have a Sudden Cardiac Event
