Stayin' Alive with hands-only CPR

March 13, 2019

Nick Schefter, owner of Critical Hazard, speak about the importance of getting hands-only CPR training.

Hands-only stresses quick, steady compression and eliminates the requirement for mouth-to-mouth rescue breaths, Schefter said, the latter used only in the case of infants and if the provider feels comfortable in doing so.

"We want you to do chest compressions so that the person maintains the blood flow of the person who has suffered cardiac arrest," Schefter said. "That will probably increase the chances of survival for that person."
