Importance Of CPR Education Highlighted During Awareness Week

CPRWhen it comes to suffering from sudden cardiac arrest, bystander CPR can double or even triple survival rates, but in the majority of such incidents, there is no immediate help.

CPR educator Kim Harkins says that is partly due to people not being certain how to perform CPR, or they may be wary of giving mouth-to-mouth.  But she explains that the recommended method has changed over the years so it is simply chest compressions with a disco beat.

Harkins notes that "doing something is always better than doing nothing."  This is National CPR and AED Awareness Week.
