Learn Hands-Only CPR Tomorrow!

Did you know you can perform CPR with just your hands? If you take just a few minutes to learn the life-saving skill of hands-only CPR, you might be more likely to jump in and help if you see someone experience a sudden cardiac event.

When your heart stops pumping, blood is not getting to your brain… this is not good.
If a person suddenly collapses from a sudden cardiac event, they likely have a few minutes of oxygen left in their blood, so the focus should be on pumping that blood until help can arrive.

There are instances when the standard breathing/chest compression CPR is called for, but you might save a life if you take a few minutes to learn Hands-Only CPR. I’m CPR certified, but even I wonder if I would feel nervous about not getting the breathing part right. But I don’t think I would have any hesitation about performing hands-only CPR.

If you have a few minutes tomorrow, you can learn hands-only Sidewalk CPR at either the Westlake Promenade from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. or at The Commons in Calabasas from 4-7 p.m.

More Info

After you learn hands-only CPR, you might want to take a full CPR class so you can perfect your chest compressions (it’s not easy) and learn rescue breathing.
