Learn CPR in Less Than 10 Minutes at the Stanislaus Fair
From: The Turllck City News - Stanislaus, CA
At this year’s Stanislaus County Fair visitors can learn cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, in less than 10 minutes, thanks to a partnership between Emanuel Medical Center, the Stanislaus Heart Rescue Project, and American Medical Response.
The partnership will have medical professionals and first-responders at the fair to teach compression-only CPR on July 13, Free Senior Day.
“With compression-only CPR, you only perform chest compressions and don’t breathe into the person’s lungs,” explained Michael Corbin, the clinical education manager at American Medical Response. “For someone who has had sudden cardiac arrest, it’s all you need to do, and we can teach compression-only CPR in 10 minutes.”
