WACO, Texas – The Waco Fire Department is teaming with the American Heart Association – CPR & First Aid to educate the community in Hands Only CPR.
Hands Only CPR is a way for a bystander to step in and save a life of an adult or teen who has collapsed due to cardiac arrest. Recent studies and statistics show immediate chest compressions for a victim even without respirations can save lives.
Most cardiac arrests happen at the home. Survival for patients depends on immediate CPR from bystanders. However, most people do not have proper or professional CPR training. Most of the patients are usually family members or someone you know. The Hands-Only CPR can definitely help save the lives of your friends and loved ones.
