CPR is good, good stuff. It isn’t perfect, it doesn’t save everyone, but it is the absolute best thing you can do.
If you believe the stats, 4 out of 5 cardiac arrests occur at home. This means the most likely person you will save will be someone in your immediate circle of family or friends.
Go here to find a hands on course. It’s good stuff, and everyone needs to do it.
And before you go to the course–before you sign off of this post, in fact–you MUST watch the video about Hands-Only CPR. Double bonus points for not being distracted by the chests of the disco girls that save the day, and actually reading the shirts.
“Disco can save lives.” Never thought I’d say that.
UPDATE: British version here. No cute girls. In fact, the opposite of cute girls.
