CPR. A lifesaving action.

When an adult has a sudden cardiac arrest, his or her survival depends greatly on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby. Unfortunately, less than 1/3 of those people who experience a cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location get that help. Most bystanders are worried that they might do something wrong or make things worse. That’s why the AHA has simplified things.

It never hurts to refresh one's memory about CPR since we never know when we need to use it, and not everyone can hang out with medics ;-)

All okay here, I think. Hope you are well, too, Diana!
