UA Doctor: Chest-only CPR Saves More Lives
From: The Yuma Sun
You see someone collapse and you wonder if you can help. You're not certified in CPR and hesitate to perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Actually, you no longer need to worry about correctly performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Mouth-to-mouth breaths are not even needed, according to medical experts.
The American Heart Association now recommends that untrained bystanders and medical personnel alike begin resuscitation efforts with chest compressions only.
