Hands-only CPR can save thousands of lives

The American Heart Association (AHA) reports that, each year, 424,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest, most often at home or work. 

About 4 out of 10 victims get CPR from a bystander until help arrives, which triples the person’s chance for survival.

To improve the odds that bystander CPR will be performed, the AHA updated its guidelines for teens and adults in sudden cardiac arrest to just two simple steps: Call 911, then push hard and fast on the breastbone (sternum) in the center of the chest.
