A lesson in saving lives
BATON ROUGE - The American Heart Association recommends a hands-only C.P.R. To keep blood pumping for someone in an emergency.
This week, the AHA is promoting C.P.R. Awareness to prepare people for a situation where a person's blood isn't pumping efficiently. The association even offers online courses that teach the proper technique for C.P.R. For more information, click here.
In a situation where someone collapses, cardiology nurse Jennifer Gregg said the first 3 to 5 minutes are the most important. According to Gregg, these first few minutes are when C.P.R. has the greatest chance of reviving the person.
C.P.R. stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
