Hands Only CPR

WHY LEARN HANDS-ONLY CPR?
Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death. Nearly 400,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests
occur annually in the United States.

  • When a teen or adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby.
  • Sadly, 89 percent of people who suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene.
  • Most Americans (70 percent) feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they don’t know how to administer CPR or they’re afraid of hurting the victim.

BE THE DIFFERENCE FOR SOMEONE YOU LOVE
If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of
someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.

  • 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests happen in private or residential settings.
  • Unfortunately, only 41 percent of people who experience a cardiac arrest at home, work or in public get the immediate help that they need before emergency help arrives.
  • Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for sudden cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public. It can double or even triple a victim’s chance of survival.

NOTE: The AHA still recommends CPR with compressions and breaths for infants and children and victims of
drowning, drug overdose, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.
