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!

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.
