Over two hundred participants practiced the technique on mannequins and received additional information about CPR certification.According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrests are more common than you think. Nearly 300,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually and only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.For more information about Hands-Only CPR, please visit the American Heart Association website at www.heart.org/handsonlycpr.
