Hands-only CPR ​(non- certification)

Can't make it to one of our classes but still want to learn how to do compressions until help arrives?  Hands Only CPR is CPR without giving mouth-to-mouth breathing (compressions only). It's recommended for people to use on a teen or adult who collapse suddenly in an "out of hospital" setting (like home, work, a park, or sporting venue). 

There's 2 easy steps:

    1. Call 9-1-1 (or send someone to call). 
    2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest.
When you call 911, stay on the phone until the 911 dispatcher (operator) tells you to hang up. The dispatcher will ask you about the emergency, details like your name, your location (be specific! especially if you’re calling from a mobile phone without a fixed location or address), or if the person is breathing. Remember that answering the dispatcher’s questions will not delay the arrival of help.
