Hands only CPR

by John B. on Friday, November 2, 2012

The cast of the CBS hit series "Rules of Engagement" has teamed up with the American Heart Association to release a new digital video "Rules of Hands-Only CPR.".

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the US with only a 7-9% average survival rate. Bystander CPR can double or triple survival from cardiac arrest.  Currently, only about 30 percent of victims of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest receive any type of CPR.

Experts agree that if more people knew how to provide effective, simple-to-apply Hands Only CPR, more victims could be helped instantly, doubling or even tripling their chances of survival.
