Do YOU know what to do in case of cardiac arrest?
A free training class of Continuous Chest Compression CPR for the public with hands-on training on life-like mannequins. Experienced and specially trained medical students will walk you through the necessary steps and answer your questions. Presented by University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center.
Continuous Chest Compression CPR is an easy, efficient way to help a victim of cardiac arrest. Developed in Tucson at the UA Sarver Heart Center, Continuous Chest Compression CPR is easy to learn, easy to remember and easy to perform. There is no need for mouth-to-mouth breathing.
Research has shown that calling 911 and administering continuous chest compressions is the most effective way to increase the chance of survival of sudden cardiac arrest in adults.
REGISTRATION/MORE INFORMATION: No pre-registration necessary. RSVP to (520) 626-4146. Free parking is available in UMC’s patient/visitor parking garage.
