The Basics of Hands-Only CPR

If confronted with an emergency situation, would you know how to administer life-saving measures? This video illustrates how to give hands-only CPR.

Traditional CPR entails the use of both your breath and hands. However, you can engage in hands-only CPR instead to help someone who is unconscious and not breathing. As soon as you realize that a person is in need of medical help, call 911. Then, you can begin hands-only CPR. Place both hands, one on top of the other, on the middle of the chest. Proceed to push down with a rapid yet consistent pumping action. Continue this action until emergency care arrives.
