February is Heart Health month, and a great time to remind everyone to learn hands-only CPR.
When someone suffers a cardiac arrest (the abrupt loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness), their survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby.
Hands-only CPR is simple, and anyone (even older kids) can do it.
More than 70% of cardiac arrests occur at home, so if called on to perform CPR, you may be trying to save the life of a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
Join LifeFlight Eagle Education Manger Liz Parker as she demonstrates the simple steps to perform hands-only CPR.
Read a story about a LifeFlight Eagle patient’s sudden cardiac arrest, and how his wife called on her CPR training to help save his life.
