                        Hands-Only CPR
                        Hands-Only™ CPR is CPR without mouth-to-mouth breaths. It is recommended for use by people who see an
                        adult suddenly collapse in the “out-of-hospital” setting.
                        Hands-Only™ CPR performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR (CPR
                        that includes breaths) in the first few minutes of an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest. Conventional CPR
                        may be better than Hands-Only CPR for certain victims, such as infants and children, adults who are found
                        in cardiac arrest, or victims of drowning or collapse due to breathing problems. Any attempt at CPR is better
                        than no attempt.


                                 If someone collapses, is not breathing normally, and
                                 is unresponsive to shaking:
                                 l Call 911 (or have someone call 911).

                                 l Position the person on his/her back.

                                 l Put one hand on top of the other in the middle of the victim’s chest.

                                 l Keeping your arms straight, push hard and fast, at about 100 presses a minute.

                                 l If there’s another bystander, take turns.

                                 l Keep CPR interruptions to a minimum.

                                 l Use an automated external defibrillator (AED) if available.

                                 l Continue until paramedics take over.

                                 Note: Children and drowning victims still need mouth-to-mouth.

                        Planning Guide for
                        Conducting a Hands-Only CPR Class
                        Introduction
                        If an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting
                        CPR from someone nearby. Unfortunately, fewer than 1/3 of those people who experience a cardiac arrest
                        at home, work, or in a public location get that help.
                        Most bystanders are worried that they might do something wrong or make things worse. Providing
                        Hands-Only CPR to an adult who has collapsed from SCA can more than double that person’s
                        chance of survival.
                        Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use also dramatically increases an SCA victim’s chance of survival.
                        Learning the location of nearby AEDs and how to use them can mean the difference between life or
                        death for victims of SCA.
                        As part of our school’s Emergency Action Plan, we are offering our coaches, staff, athletes, and
                        parents the opportunity to take a short class on Hands-Only CPR and AED use.
