Health Tip: Simple CPR

Doing CPR on someone in cardiac arrest can double the chances of survival, the American Heart Association says.

(HealthDay News) — Doing CPR on someone in cardiac arrest can double the chances of survival, the American Heart Association says.
The AARP recommends these steps for administering CPR:

    • Do not wait. A person’s chances for survival fall up to 10 percent for every minute of delay.
    • Send someone to look for an Automated External Defibrillator.
    • Push up to two inches downward into the body.
    • Push faster. If compressions are faster, they are more likely to be more effective.
