American Heart Association's Hands-Only CPR Campaign


American Heart Association Austin
10900-B Stonelake Blvd., Suite 320 ATX, 78759
512-338-2400
Local chapter

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help.

When calling 911, you will be asked for your location. Be specific, especially if you're calling from a mobile phone as that is not associated with a fixed address. Answering the dispatcher's questions will not delay the arrival of help.

How to give Hands-Only CPR
If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song "Stayin' Alive." CPR can more than double a person's chances of survival, and "Stayin' Alive" has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.

TAKE A MINUTE TO LEARN HOW TO SAVE A LIFE
Watch the short demo video. Visit heart.org/handsonlycpr to watch the Hands-Only CPR instructional video and share it with the important people in your life. You can also find a CPR class near you.

NOTE: The AHA still recommends CPR with compressions and breaths for infants and children and victims of drowning, drug overdose, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.
