What is Continuous Chest Compression CPR?
My husband sent me this information that he got from my mom on a new and easier-but-still-effective CPR method. We usually get a babysitter once a year and take an infant CPR class together at our Children’s Hospital. Since our kids have stopped putting choking hazards in their mouths, we haven’t taken a class in a few years (ok, maybe closer to 6 years).
This technique for CPR is simple and easy (no mouth to mouth or clearing of airway for example). It’s a technique that is especially effective for saving an adult who is having cardiac arrest. It’s worth the 5 minutes to view it on YouTube and you won’t need a babysitter to learn this!
Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks. You can lessen this recurring loss by learning Continuous Chest Compression CPR, a hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest. It’s easy and does not require mouth-to-mouth contact, making it more likely bystanders will try to help, and it was developed at the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
“This video is worth sharing,” said Gordon A. Ewy, MD, director of the UA Sarver Heart Center and one of the research pioneers who developed this method.
If you haven’t seen this, you should. If you have seen it, it won’t hurt to see it again. This is a new CPR technique which is much simpler.
This is a very important video regarding the latest CPR procedure. Please watch and forward to your friends and family if you haven’t
already done so. You never know, a life may be saved using this new procedure.
