Hands-Only CPR

CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation which is a lifesaving emergency procedure that involves the repeated compression of a person’s chest who is suffering from cardiac arrest. The purpose of CPR is to restore a victim’s blood circulation and breathing.

Hands-Only CPR is the alternative form of conventional CPR for those who are not certified. Hands-Only CPR is a method of CPR that requires only the use of your hands to provide chest compressions. No rescue breaths are involved in Hands-Only CPR, so you are not required to implement “mouth-to-mouth”. Studies show that adults who receive Hands-Only CPR have a similar chance of survival as those victims who receive conventional CPR. Hands-Only CPR can double, and in some cases triple, a person’s chance of survival.
