Hands can do incredible things…

…but nothing compares to using them to help save a life

Hands only CPR

American Heart Association is conducting a promotional campaign to motivate and educate people to learn and if necessary perform Hands-Only CPR .

They say that…. “When an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby. But less than 1/3 of those people get that help. Most bystanders are worried they might do something wrong or make things worse.”

Could not agree more.

Among other very useful materials, they have created this great interactive web application called Hands Symphony which is so incredibly fun. Try it and share it with other. If you get only one person to learn Hands-Only CPR, that would be a great thing.
