CPR - Expedient Version - Compression Only
Knowing how to save a family member or friend if they are stricken by a heart attack is an important part of your preparedness efforts. Watch the adaptation from the Mayo Clinic that may just save a life. This is the chest compression only version without rescue breathing.
Considering traditional CPR may result in a 1% success rate if done effectively (read perfectly) we think that having this knowledge and applying it can save a life. If you already have had CPR training you can watch this and be able to respond immediately if you witness an event take place.
Always call for assistance from 9/11 or others nearby to help before the "diffusion of responsibility" effect kicks in.....
