Hands-Only CPR Kiosks
Hands-Only CPR Training Kiosks Save Lives
In 2013, a pilot kiosk was installed at the Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport (DFW). The interactive kiosk features a touch screen with a video program that gives a brief “how-to,” followed by a practice session and a 30-second CPR test. With the help of a practice manikin, or a rubber torso, the kiosk gives feedback about the depth and rate of compressions and proper hand placement – factors that influence the effectiveness of CPR.
In 2016, the American Heart Association and the Anthem Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Anthem, Inc., introduced five Hands-Only CPR Training Kiosks that teach the simple, yet lifesaving skills of Hands-Only CPR. Today, there are more than 30 kiosks in cities all across the country.
