Someone — maybe a friend or even a family member — has cardiac arrest right in front of you. Their heart has stopped beating. They need help. What do you do?
A survey shows that only half of Americans would perform lifesaving CPR. That’s because the other half don’t know what to do, fear legal ramifications or hurting the victim, and think someone else will come to the rescue.
We get it. But the benefits of performing CPR far outweigh the risk and can double or triple the chance of survival. So don’t wait for someone else to step up. Learn and do CPR. You might even save someone you love.
