Hands-Only CPR Takes 60 Seconds to Learn and Could SAVE the Life of Someone You LOVE

Did you know, CPR Week runs from June 1 to June 7? In celebration of National CPR Week we want you to know that anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed.

Put very simply: The life you save with CPR is mostly likely to be someone you love.

 This June, in honor of National CPR Week, the American Heart Association is calling on all Americans to learn how to give Hands-Only CPR by watching a simple one-minute video at heart.org/cpr.
