What is it?

Hands-only CPR is CPR without the mouth-to-mouth breaths. It’s a life-saving technique that’s used in emergencies in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.

Who should receive it?

Hands-only CPR is recommended for use if you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse in an “out-of-hospital” setting.

How do you perform it? 

It consists of two simple steps.

1. Call 9-1-1 (or delegate someone to do that).

2. Push hard and fast in the center of the chest at 100 to 120 beats a minute

(Sing “Staying Alive” in your head to keep time)
