Learn the Basics of Hands-Only CPR!
The purpose of the American Red Cross Citizen CPR course is to teach untrained bystanders how to perform hands-only CPR. Having more citizen bystaners trained in this simple skill can help save lives by putting more cardiac arrest victims within a few steps of livesaving assistance.
Did you know…
- When a person’s heart stops, brain death occurs in as little as 8-10 minutes.
- The national average response time for an ambulance is 10 minutes. Most communities have a standard of eight minutes, but a response time may be as long as 12-15 minutes.
- Research shows that the shorter the time from collapse to when CPR is initiated, the greater the chance of survival in a cardiac arrest emergency.
