This technique increases the likelihood of surviving cardiac emergencies that occur outside medical settings.
There are two steps to 'Hands-Only' CPR.
1. Call 911 and quickly, but clearly, give the address of your location.
2. Give the patient chest compressions by pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song "Stayin’ Alive."
This method is different from Full CPR because Full CPR combines rescue breaths with chest compressions.
Salt Lake Fire says the full CPR method is the best option for situations involving infants and children, drowning victims, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.
