Stayin' Alive with CPR and Toilet Paper
Did you ever think toilet paper could be life saving? Check out how one roll, a t-shirt and a towel can help you learn how to give hands-only CPR to a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) victim.
When someone suddenly collapses, their heart has stopped and while they await a shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED), you can increase their chance of survival by helping blood and oxygen to continue to circulate.
CPR can be a bridge to life as you deliver about 100-120 compressions each minute hard and fast in the center of the chest using your two hands. No breaths are necessary. Make your own training manikin at home and teach the whole family!
