Hands Only CPR Training

Chest Compression Only CPR is a new method of resuscitation developed through extensive research at UA Sarver Heart Center. Continuous aggressive chest compressions to circulate the person’s blood through their brain and heart. No mouth-to-mouth breaths are necessary. “The survival rate among patients whose collapse was witnessed and whose heart was in a shockable rhythm – and who received chest compressions only – was found to be 32 percent, compared to 19 percent in those who received chest compressions plus mouth-to-mouth breathing,” said Gordon A. Ewy, MD, Director, UA Sarver Heart Center.
